SULPHUR, La. – A southern Louisiana family has more than 100 animals, but one in particular has been the talk of the town.

Claude Aucoin has raised animals his entire life, but he was shocked when his little duck was born with not two, but four legs.

Claude said, “I’ve had animals my entire life and I’ve never had nothin like this.”

His daughter Kylie was quick to show off their duck, who goes by “Donald,” to the world.

Kylie said, “I just started telling everybody about it and it went viral, a lot of people on Facebook were liking it and sharing it. I don’t know, I just think he’s something special.”

The one of a kind four-legged duck has stunned everyone who has seen it.

The Aucoins say despite Donald’s extra legs, he still manages to get around just fine.

A local vet says Donald needs daily physical therapy to help one of his legs work properly, but says the duck should be just fine.

The Aucoin  family says they plan to make sure their 4-legged duckling lives a happy and healthy life.

Donald will make regular visits to his vet to ensure he remains healthy.
