BELFAST, Maine (AP) — The appearance of a giant rubber duck in a Maine harbor is a whimsical whodunit that has defied sleuths.

The large yellow waterfowl emblazoned with the word "joy" appeared in Belfast Harbor over the weekend.

Harbor Master Katherine Given says it's a mystery who put it there.

It's attracting attention for tourists and locals alike. Given says the 25-foot-tall duck doesn't pose a navigational hazard so there's no rush to shoo it away.
