Retail clerk Steffen Gambill holds a “roboduck,” while standing near a display of traditional duck decoys in his sporting goods store Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2001, in Seattle. The plastic replica of a hen mallard has a battery-operated spinning flap attached to its back to simulate wing-flapping movement intended to let real ducks know it’s safe to land. Duck hunters had been using the electronic and battery-powered birds to lure the real animal into their gun sights until they were ordered to stop earlierthis month in Washington state.
