    My local paper would screw up the story so bad that the headline would read something like

    "Duck saves local Army from snow plow"
    or
    "Man saves owl after being beaten by step daughter with a duck''
    or
    "Badger survives duck attack after being tickeled by a realy long feather''
    Im tellin ya.......my local rag sucks for accuracy.

    Paintball gun? Brett's not Army and he ain't no Marine... Air Force always scrambles their aircraft to intercept!

    I am happy to report that Patty is going to apperantly be fine. Aside from being over weight, goofy looking and a small cut on his neck he seems to be fine. After spending a littl "alone'' time in the reeds on the other shore......he finally hauled his fat ass accross the ice and up to my deck for breakfast. I am so glad he is fine.........but this boy is going to have to loose some weight and learn to fly if he is going to surive. I wish now I hadnt got so attached to him........he just isnt built for survival.....lol. Here are some pics for you guys.

    This is Patty giving a big hug to his rescue pilot BrettClick image for larger version.

    I dont think Patty would make that great of a meal......the meat would probably be fatty and stringy........he had some left ove Mac & Cheese for breakfast.......just a little bit.......and some bread crumbs and warm water.

    I cant tell this story without a shameless plug for the Badger Quad. Flying Monkey has been hard at work for the past year developing this sweet little ride. It does exactly what it was designed for and more. Now that it is COMBAT prooven I can say I trust my friends life with it......lol. The badger continues to sit on alert ready to scramble at a moments notice. If you check out Flying Monkeys Promo video link below......it is as creative as the Badger is. (by the way this quad started out being called the Delrin Cyno Quad but the name has evolved into the BADGER)
