A giant duck was spotted rolling down the street on Thursday in Des Moines. His name is Quacky.
Quacky, owned by Youth Emergency Shelter and Services, became untethered from his temporary home at Two Rivers Marketing, 106 E 6th St. in Des Moines, around 7 p.m. and rolled approximately two blocks before coming to a halt.
"I am happy to report the duck is back home in its nest and very safe and undamaged," said Stephen Quirk, CEO of YESS.
No foul play is suspected. Quirk blamed the windy weather for the loose duck.
Quacky had been working to promote the organization's annual duck derby, to be held May 5. -via Dave Barry
