Duck rescue

Last Friday the Franklin Fire Department received a call from Ted Mire on La. 182 who reported that he has an old telephone pole on his property that wood peckers and wood ducks use as a nesting site. Mire said a wood duck hen was stuck and in distress. Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Hildreth responded with an engine company and firefighter Andrew Stewart III to assist. The hen came out of her nest about 15 feet up the pole and was hanging by her neck. Hildreth said she apparently collected some twine for nesting and became entangled. They raised a ladder and Hildreth, above, and below at right with the duck and Mire, climbed up to cut the cord from around the duck’s neck. She was in obvious distress and exhausted from her ordeal, he said, but he finished removing the twine and Mire released her to drink and feed. Mother and brood are reportedly doing fine.
