SANTA CRUZ - Authorities were called to the 700 block of 41st Avenue Saturday afternoon for reports of an intoxicated woman abusing a duck.
According to a Santa Cruz Sheriff's Office, deputies received a call that a woman was drunk and was refusing to leave a business just after 4 p.m. The caller also said the woman was throwing a duck to the ground and apparently also trying to strangle it with some sort of leash.
When officers arrived at the scene, deputies found an intoxicated woman throwing the duck around. It was not immediately known whether the duck was wild or domesticated, or if it was the woman's pet.
The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was taken to County Jail on charges of public intoxication while deputies tried to catch the duck.
Deputies said Saturday that the animal appeared to be uninjured, but they planned to take it to the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter for evaluation.
Another “news story” where the name of the alleged “perp” is not provided, so as to preserve “political correctness”. I am sick to my stomach with the U.S.media. Ten to one she is either Korean, Chinese, or Vietnamese. This is how they do it “over there”. Get used to it.
I found the duck she was abusing.

Was it a viaduct? “Why a viaduct?’’ Why not a viachicken’’?

I’m surprised I’m not an alcoholic after raising 3 boys (now men) alone. ;)
Well, ‘em R ducks...............
Yesterday was *International Rabbit Day* in case you missed it. ;) Not sure when International duck day is, though.
I was eating at the Crows Nest. If I’d had known this lamo was abusing a poor animal, well......
I was eating at the Crows Nest at that time.
If I’d known about this quack, I would have ducked out the restaurant and feathered her bed but good.
Then she would know what a tangled web she wove and she would have been whacked on her waddle, sent a bill and I’ll bet she would have S**t the same as a duck.
None of that was funny. (but, I was at the Crows Nest)
My late sister lived west of 41st and north of the freeway but she was farm born and would have rung the ducks neck, plucked it and roasted it...
my grandmother would have too. She used to start her stories with “When I was a little boy on the farm...”
But is the duck all right?
We demand weekly follow ups on the condition of the duck. Assuming it isn’t already a l’Orange.
