Duck of Justice

Tucked in a small police museum in the Bangor Police Department, you'll find a stuffed duck -- a mascot of sorts -- the Duck of Justice!

[Emily Leitzinger, 09/08/2019]

The wood duck, a taxidermied garbage can cast-off from the Bangor district attorney's office, was given a new identity by police Sgt. Tim Cotton, and has been a social media star since 2014.
