CORINNA, Maine (CBS) — “Love finds a way” is clearly the guiding message for a couple in Maine caring for two ducks. One of those ducks has disabilities.
They call him Wry – he has what’s known as wry neck, a condition that makes it hard for him to hold his neck up. This also puts stress on his legs and he regularly loses his balance.READ MORE: 800 Nurses At Saint Vincent Hospital In Worcester Go On Strike
“He wasn’t catching himself, he was kind of like tumbling over,” Wry’s owner April Souza said.READ MORE: Harry And Meghan Detail Royal Struggles, From Discussions Of Baby's Skin Tone To Suicidal Thoughts
But the couple turned to the internet and found a creative way to help.
“I was looking up ideas online,” Souza said. “I found chicken wheelchairs, so I was like, ‘I bet I can do that with ducks.'”MORE NEWS: Coronavirus In Massachusetts: Today's Developments
Wry’s parents hope he won’t have to use the wheelchair forever, just until he builds up the strength to be able to walk without falling over.
