ITAMI, Hyogo -- A duck was found at Koyaike Park here with a metal dart through its head on Oct. 28, and captured for treatment by Itami municipal authorities the following day.

The about 10-centimeter dart was lodged in the duck's skull from just in front of the left eye through to the right cheek. Now in the care of the city after a veterinarian removed the dart and treated the wound, the bird is reportedly active and eating normally. It will be returned to Koyaike Park in a few days.

According to the municipal government, a report came in at about 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 that "there is a goose and a duck swimming here that have been shot with darts." A city employee sent to the park spotted the duck with the dart through its head, but was unable to find the goose.

Efforts to catch the wounded bird began at about 8 a.m. on Oct. 29, and took about five hours. The duck is a 30-centimeter-long female northern pintail, which migrates annually from Siberia. The missing goose is likely to be a Brant goose, a nationally designated protected species usually measuring about 60 centimeters in length. The Hyogo Prefectural Police's Itami Station has stated the dart was likely fired from a blowgun, and that it is investigating the incident as a violation of the Wildlife Protection and Proper Hunting Act.
