Lonesome Duck: Dating Ad Seeks Match For Blue Hill Man's Grieving Bird

BLUE HILL, Maine (AP) - A Maine man is using a dating ad to try to find a match for his mourning duckling. One of Chris Morris' ducks, Yellow Duck, lost its mate to a hungry bobcat a couple of weeks ago at Morris' yard in Blue Hill. Morris drew up a singles ad for Yellow Duck, and placed it on a community bulletin board at a local co-op.

The Bangor Daily News reports farm owner Sadie Greene might have just the duck to mend Yellow Duck's broken heart. Greene and Morris are arranging a meeting for the ducks Sunday.
