Pet Owner Can't Duck Lawsuit Print
Wednesday, April 30 2014

A Washington State woman is suing the owner of a pet duck, charging that the duck wandered down the street and attacked her.

Cynthia Ruddell of Washougal, Washington is suing Lolita Rose of Estacada, Oregon after suffering multiple injuries while trying to duck away from the animal.

Ruddell's attorney, Gregory Price, told a local news station that, "... The duck flapped its wings at her and knocked her back and she fell down on an outstretched hand and fractured her wrist in two spots." 

The suit seeks $25,000 for medical expenses and $250,000 for pain and suffering and the interference the injuries caused to Ruddell's normal, daily activities.

"We had neighbors that indicated this duck was a crazy duck that attacked kids at the school bus stop and other people before," Price said, adding that Rose should have warned neighbors about the danger because she knew the duck had, "abnormally dangerous propensities in attacking people." 

News reports indicate that Price hopes to settle the lawsuit out of court within the next 60 days.
