Starkville Daily News - - AROUND TOWN -

A con­cerned com­mu­nity mem­ber re­ported a duck in their back­yard and An­i­mal Con­trol went out and picked it up to de­liver it to the Ok­tibbeha County Hu­mane So­ci­ety. The duck was ex­am­ined by a vet­eri­nar­ian and was sent to a farm on Tues­day night. An­i­mal Con­trol also found a sick pi­geon a few weeks ago at the Starkville Po­lice Depart­ment. After some love and care from a wildlife re­hab­ber, the bird came into the shel­ter to find a home. OCHS says some­one was in­ter­ested in adopt­ing a bird and the pi­geon was sent to a new home on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. “It's not very of­ten we are able to place ex­otic an­i­mals right away,” said OCHS Gen­eral Man­ager Christy Wells.
