Up until recently, this beautiful bird was bound to be dinner. Last week, the daring duck freed herself from the confines of a poultry slaughterhouse in Brooklyn, somehow managing to escape her cage to make a break for freedom. After spending about five days in hiding without food or water behind a building nearby, the escaped duck was rescued by volunteers from a New York-based animal advocacy group, the Empty Cages Collective.
"The duck was starved and dehydrated when we finally got to her," ECC told the Gothamist. "But she should make a full recovery."
