Lonesome duck: Dating ad seeks match for man’s grieving bird

DATELINE: BLUE HILL, Maine (AP)

There’s no Tinder for waterfowl, but that didn’t stop a Maine bird owner from trying to find a match for a mourning duckling.

One of Chris Morris’ ducks, Yellow Duck, lost its mate to a hungry bobcat a couple of weeks ago in Morris’ yard.  Morris, a 31-year-old special education teacher, drew up a singles ad for Yellow Duck and placed it on a community bulletin board at a local grocery store.

The ad says: “Duck seeking duck. Lonesome runner duck seeks companion. Partner recently deceased.” It also includes an email address dedicated to the dating search and states, “serious replies only.”

The Bangor Daily News reports farm owner Sadie Greene might have just the duck to mend Yellow Duck’s broken heart. They have a date this weekend.  Word is Yellow Duck’s favorite food is slugs and will most likely be on the menu for the big date.

Apparently, Love is what it is all QUACKED up to be.
