CORINNA, Maine (CBS) — “Love finds a way” is clearly the guiding message for a couple in Maine caring for two ducks. One of those ducks has disabilities.
They call him Wry – he has what’s known as wry neck, a condition that makes it hard for him to hold his neck up. This also puts stress on his legs and he regularly loses his balance.READ MORE: Woman Collapses, Dies While Climbing Stairs To 19th-Floor Apartment During Power Outage In Co-Op City
“He wasn’t catching himself, he was kind of like tumbling over,” Wry’s owner April Souza said.READ MORE: Exclusive: Orange County COVID Vaccine Site Ready To Go, But Organizers Say State Won't Send Them Any Doses
But the couple turned to the internet and found a creative way to help.
“I was looking up ideas online,” Souza said. “I found chicken wheelchairs, so I was like, ‘I bet I can do that with ducks.'”MORE NEWS: New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza Stepping Down
Wry’s parents hope he won’t have to use the wheelchair forever, just until he builds up the strength to be able to walk without falling over.
