Greedy Duck

On January 10, 1940, Jean Glassbrenner kindly tries to feed a duck some Arm & Hammer soda. It's a little late for bicarbonate to help the upset stomach of this American Merganzer duck. The greedy duck died trying to swallow a large perch, still in his bill, which was too large for its mouth. The dead duck was found on the shores of Elbow Lake by Charlie Miller of McKinley Hill.
