MOORHEAD - A duck trapped inside the chimney of a Moorhead home was freed and released Monday, April 30, thanks to the help of a community service officer.

A post on the Moorhead Police Department's Facebook page shows the officer, Cameron Cordes, posing with "Santa" the duck after he was able to free the bird from a chimney.

"This duck, 'Santa,' was going through his annual spring identity crisis and decided to once again jump down the chimney of this home," Cordes said in the Facebook post. "This was the second time in two years ... clearly my talk with him last year was ineffective."
