Pells Pond Duck Released

Pells Pond Rescue & Release footage - 29th Oct and 5th November.

A major rescue operation took place at the Pells Pond Lewes on 29th October to try and catch a duck with a fishing hook attached to its beak and chest. Several attempts to catch the duck failed as the duck could just about fly. Luckily the RSPCA had also received a call about the duck and a joint operation between the two charities finally succeeded. WRAS founder Trevor Weeks, up to his chest in smelly water was able to net the duck at the far end of the pond. The duck was taken back to WRAS's Casualty Care Centre at Whitesmith where vet Chris Hall from Henley House Vets in Uckfield was able to remove the hook safety from the chest. After a week of antibiotics the duck was returned and released back home at Lewes.
