Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, Inc.


We are sad to announce from our friends at the Tallahassee Museum, that "Perky the Lucky Duck" has passed away. This little ring-necked duck made international news in 2007 after surviving a gunshot wound, dog retrieval and two days of refrigeration. The duck came to live at the Tallahassee Museum after recovering from her injuries at Goose Creek Wildlife Sanctuary. Below is our original story from 2007 when Perky first made headlines and why her will to live and inner strength garnered so much attention!
