Neighbor Calls Killing 'Senseless' 

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- A duck was found dead over the weekend with a dart through 
its neck. 
Veterinarians say the animal likely survived for several hours or days with 
the wound before it died. 
Bob Sallinger of the Portland Audubon Society told KOIN 6 News that this is 
not an isolated incident. 
"These are park ducks and they're usually very tame. There's no sport in 
this. They are not hunting them for food -- they're just destroying living 
creatures," he said. 
Neighbors near Waterhouse Park in Beaverton are upset, one man calling the 
animal abuse "senseless." 
The duck may have come from a man-made pond across the street at the 
Claremont Golf Course in the Bethany community.
