One Legged Duck Finds a Life of Balance at Carousel Park
Meet Dallas, a domestic Cayuga duck born and raised at Carousel Park. He was enjoying a lovely life at the park’s Enchanted Lake when Morgan Lockard discovered he had injured his leg while on daily Rounds. Lockard cleaned his wounds and applied medication and wrapped his leg until he could be seen by the vet. The Veterinarian said she did a great job. He said, "Her expert care gave Dallas a fighting chance!" But the damage to the leg was too great and it needed to be amputated. Dallas could no longer live at the lake.
The staff decided to adopt Dallas and his companion into the Carousel Kid’s Corral where they will be cared for in a custom enclosure featuring a wading pool and lots of fresh air.
10 days after surgery Dallas is standing tall, strong, happy, and healthy.
Site administrator, Regina Marini, emphasizes that "saving Dallas required a combined effort from the Carousel Staff. Everyone gladly pitched in to help. Medications had to be dispensed twice daily. It was also important to keep his environment clean and comfortable. A lot of tender loving care went into his recovery. The New Castle County staff at Carousel Park are phenomenal. Dallas is now enjoying life with his buddy at the Carousel Kids Corral.”
