Duck survives crossbow bolt attack in Barnsley park

A duck has survived being shot in the head with a crossbow bolt in a South Yorkshire country park.

The incident is believed to have happened at the end of last week at Dearne Valley Park and was immediately referred to the RSPCA, said Barnsley Council.

The attack was "an awful thing to have happened", a council spokeswoman said.
