Vincenzo (his friends call him Vinny) was found as a stray. Before he was rescued he experienced some type of head trauma and is mostly blind. While Vinny looks like a mallard, he is a domestic duck. Domesticated "pet" ducks are often dumped or abandoned by their owners. While wild ducks fair just fine in the wild, most domesticated ducks cannot fly and do not have the natural instincts to keep them safe and healthy.
