Joe Mathews rescued the duck as a small duckling. He's been domesticated and spends most of his time with Buddy the dog.
Herbert never leaves the backyard, so his owner is worried the duck won't survive on its own.
"He's pretty ugly, but he's beautiful to us," said Joe. "Herbert hasn't been alone in the environment, so he doesn't have any feeding habits."
If you see Herbert roaming around Williams Boulevard and Stevens Drive in Richland, please contact our station.
