Ducks covered in crude oil from a pipeline in Mayflower, AR, are being captured and transported to the HAWK Center in Russellville, AR, for emergency cleaning, monitoring, and rehabilitation. The oil pipeline erupted Friday, March 29, 2013, in this small community, narrowly missing pouring into Lake Conway after the efforts of the Hazmat Team, local authorities, and volunteers worked quickly to staunch the flow of oil.
