I feel horrible. We were walking and saw a duck that had one badly mangled leg. It was black all the way to the knee. He was limping around to eat the bread we had and swam great but we still figured he could get some help. I took him to the wildlife rescue center where they took him in. They told me they would do their best and I told the lady he was eating and swimming great. I got an update saying the euthanized it because it can't survive in the wild with 1 foot. I googled it, found this thread and have read that ducks survive great. I am SO ****** off!!! I killed this duck and I didn't need to intervene. I should have left it alone. I keep thinking of how it would peak through the box hole and look at me. I was taking it to it's death and feel horrible. Did I do the wrong thing? (I am not a duck/chucked person) but an animal lover. Would it have been ok staying in the wild?
