Get ready for another inspiring story about the bond between animals and people!

An injured mallard duck was spotted near the marina on Lake Murray in South Carolina last fall with half of his upper bill missing, which made it difficult for the mallard, affectionately named Bobo, to hunt and eat. Through the kindness of strangers, Bobo was given the food that he needed to survive, but it was obvious that more needed to be done if Bobo was going to survive on his own someday.

Despite Bobo’s injury, he won the affection of all who he encountered. Marina worker Billy McNair said, “He became one of the guys. He’d fly around the point to the dock to be fed. Then he’d walk in and make himself at home. He was almost like a dog – a pet.” Last January, McNair brought his beloved Bobo to veterinarians at the Carolina Wildlife Center to have his injuries treated.

Carolina Wildlife Center veterinarian, Greg Burkett, made a cast from the beak of another duck and fashioned an acrylic replacement to help Bobo live a more normal life. Because of the nature of his injuries, he will not be able to return to the wild but can happily live at the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue surrounded by daily doses of love and affection.

Bobo is doing well at his new home and has even found himself a girlfriend. Rock on, Bobo!
