WHEATON, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A duck found injured in DuPage County will live to waddle another day thanks to the efforts of a concerned citizen, sheriff's police and animal control officials.

Sheriff's Deputy Pete Matranga rescued the duck Thursday after responding to a call from the resident, who found the injured animal in an unincorporated area of DuPage County, according to the sheriff's office.

The duck was turned over to the DuPage County Animal Control to be treated for its injuries, the sheriff's office said.

“Sometimes it's the smaller things that are important to the citizens of DuPage County and the DuPage County Sheriff's office understands those concerns and is always willing to help,” Sheriff John Zaruba said in a statement.

Eventually, officials say, the duck will be released back into its environment – an outcome that seems to fit the bill.
