    • Deputies in one Florida county found quite the surprise when responding to a reported burglary: a duck.

    Members of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office were in for quite the surprise when answering a call of a suspected burglar inside a home.

    According to the Palm Beach Post, a woman called 911 after returning to her Palm City home to find her front door open and noises coming from inside.

    Deputies responded and found the culprit: a duck. The agency had fun with the finding on their Facebook page, posting the following summary:

    "Deputy [Becky] Brady advised that the suspect tried to duck out on her several times, but they were able to apprehend him without rattling any feathers," the post says. "Despite a fowl attitude, the uninvited house guest was released and not charged. Another MCSO case quacked."
