LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — For more than a month people have been trying to help a duck on Lake Sacajawea near Longview that had a blow gun dart through its neck.

But the duck could still swim and fly and got away from everyone trying to capture it — until this week.

The Daily News reports (http://is.gd/EFxbGY ) Longview Parks Supervisor Curt Nedved and two employees were able to nab the wily waterfowl Tuesday in a fishing net.

Nedved had to pull out the dart himself because the duck was tangled in the net. The bird is being treated at Ocean Beach Animal Hospital.
