This will probably be the saddest photo you see all day.
Apparently some prick decided it'd be cool to sneak up on a juvenile duckling at Port Angeles' Lincoln Park last week and shoot it with a massive blow-gun dart.
"The dart went straight through the duckling's chest, close to the surface of his skin," said Jaye Moore, the center's executive director. "He's clearly in pain and undersized compared to his sibling, who we left with their mom. We'll work with our veterinarians at Greywolf Veterinary Hospital in Sequim to treat him and return him quickly to his mother, if possible. We hope that nothing vital was struck by the dart."
The duck was apparently found tangled in a fishing line that had snagged the protruding dart.
It's is now being cared for at the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center. Officials there say that the weapon in question is a "Terminator Blowgun."
