Just ducky

Stumpy the duck, who shot to fame after he was born with four legs, has now lost both of his extra limbs. Stumpy, who is owned by Nicky Janaway of Warrawee Duck Farm in the New Forest, Hampshire, lost one of his extra legs last year after he caught it in a fence, and the remaining spare has now dropped off. Janaway told the Daily Mail: "A couple of weeks ago, we noticed Stumpy's spare leg had started to change colour. It got more and more black. "When I got Stumpy out of bed at 6am this morning, his leg was still there but in the afternoon it had gone. "He isn't in pain and is totally oblivious to the fact that he now just has two legs."
