A duck story: Lovebirds find new home at Minn. Zoo


Two ducks found injured in separate locations in the west metro sparked a lifelong partnership at the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.

KARE 11 reports the ducks, both of the lesser scaup species, were brought to the Humane Society last November to be treated. During their stay, the pair quickly bonded.

Ducks are believed to mate for life.

The lovebirds were deemed unreleasable due to their injuries. In the spring, the zoo offered them a new home on Gibbon Lake along the Tropics Trail with a variety of other ducks and flamingos.

The ducks are still being monitored by zoo staff, but are doing very well in their new home, the zoo says.
