SNAPPED: Duckling rescued at Schwabacher Landing

JACKSON, Wyo. — A tour group from Wild Things Of Wyoming recently witnessed the rescue of a Goldeneye duckling. The rescuer, John Stephenson, is a Grand Teton National Park Biologist.

The duckling had been entangled in fishing line along with an adult, presumably its mother, that had apparently perished before the pair could be rescued by park officials.

Once Stephenson had released the untangled duckling, onlookers enjoyed watching it reunite with its siblings.
