The real Scrooge McDuck

You can call this lawsuit a “quack,” but maybe not for the reason you’d expect. Washougal, Ore., native Cynthia Ruddell claims that she was walking down the street on May 7, 2012, when the pet duck of neighbor Lolita Rose attacked her. According to Ruddell’s attorney, “[T]he duck flapped its wings at her and knocked her back and she fell down on an outstretched hand and fractured her wrist in two spots.” As a result of the attack, the suit said, Ruddell broke her right wrist, sprained or strained her elbow and shoulder, and suffered a rotator cuff injury.
