A few people who were walking in Byethorne Park in Adelaide, Australia, saw something profoundly disturbing in the pond. There were a few ducks by the shore, and one swimming in the water. But something wasn't quite right.
While the other ducks looked completely normal, the one in the water had a knife protruding from its head.
People were shocked by the sight and took some photos before reporting the incident to the RSPCA. Unfortunately, when rescuers arrived, there was no sign of the duck or the knife. With the assistance of the public, they're hoping to locate the duck and give him proper medical attention.
"A rescue officer attended on Saturday morning and searched but did not find a duck with a knife in its head. The knife may have become dislodged between the time of the photos being taken and the Rescue Officer’s attendance, or the duck may no longer be in the park – we’re continuing to monitor sightings of the duck with the assistance of locals who are familiar with the waterbird life in the area," the RSPCA said in a statement.
