State wildlife police are searching for a serial duck killer on the west side of the state.
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Police discovered 28 ducks stuffed into three white garbage bags, Dec. 26 according to a Facebook post. The ducks were shot and dumped, whole, about 9 miles east of Aberdeen, Wash.
Of the 28 ducks, eight were hen Mallards, 18 were Drake Mallards and two were smaller birds, according to the agency’s Facebook post.
WDFD officials believe the ducks were killed over the holiday weekend and are asking the public to report any relevant information.
