Just when you think people can’t get any more ridiculous, along comes a woman who not only can’t fight off an “attack” by a pet duck, but also is not even ashamed of telling the whole world that she got beat up by a freaking duck. On top of that, she is shameless enough to sue the owner of the vicious attack duck for $275,000 for “pain and suffering.”
Yes, ladies and gentleman, this is the world we live in. Next thing you know we’ll have roaming bands of wild waterfowl terrorizing neighborhoods.
From the Oregonlive.com story:
A Washougal woman is suing the Estacada owner of a domestic duck, claiming she suffered a broken wrist after the duck attacked her while she was stepping out of her motor home.
Cynthia Ruddell’s lawsuit states that she was on her mother’s property when she fell as she was trying to escape the duck on May 7, 2012. The duck was owned by her mother’s neighbor, Lolita Rose. Ruddell broke her right wrist, sprained or strained her elbow and shoulder, and suffered a rotator cuff injury.
“The duck flapped its wings at her and knocked her back and she fell down on an outstretched hand and fractured her wrist in two spots,” Ruddell’s lawyer states.
