GLOUCESTER (CBS) – A stranded duck was plucked from the frigid waters of Gloucester after it became tangled in a net and stuck on the ice.

Several Animal Rescue League of Boston members were involved in the rescue, including two who donned cold water suits to rescue the duck.

According to the Animal Rescue League, a rescuer was tethered to shore and made his way out to the duck.

The bird was rescued, and volunteers discovered that it was stuck on the ice because it was “severely tangled” in a net.

 The Wicked Tuna’s “Hard Merchandise”

I caught the Hard Merchandise from the TV Show Wicked Tuna unloading a few Bluefin Tuna at the State fish Pier this Summer. One of the Tv crew members said the shows they’re filming will air in February 2015. So you may get lucky and watch them film on the Gloucester waterfront. The Hard Merchandise has been fishing for years here in Gloucester way before the TV show. They dock at the wharf behind the Madfish Galleries on Rocky Neck. I’m sure all their Fans will enjoy these photo’s. Video’s coming soon.
