Darkwing came to Heartland in 2012 with his siblings Dief and Jobu (both of whom have since passed away). The trio were found as strays by the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission and fostered by a volunteer before coming to our sanctuary. Domestic ducks like Darkwing are often "dumped" at local ponds or lakes after their owners get tired of caring for them. Unfortunately, most domestic ducks cannot fly and often get attacked and killed by predators in the wild.
