Lesser-Scaup-110012-web On January 7, this male Lesser Scaup was found huddled alongside a road in Everett, WA. He was captured by Everett Animal Control who brought him to us at PAWS Wildlife Center.

The rehabilitator that performed the initial examination of the bird found two deep lacerations on the his neck. The wounds were consistent with the duck having been attacked by a predator.

PAWS Wildlife Veterinarian Dr. John Huckabee cleaned and dressed the duck’s wounds and has been monitoring the bird closely. Although he was severely depressed at admission, the scaup has shown marked improvement, and it is hoped that he will make a full recovery.
