>Feed Dog Food to Ducks – Not Bread!


New Bern, NC – If you’re going to feed the ducks, use cheap dog food that is full of nutrients and will help them maintain their health.

Don’t use bread because it is empty calories and fills them up without receiving proper nutrition. They will die from vitamin, calcium, and other deficiencies.

Special thanks to Director Ellen Westermann of the Wildlife Animal Rehabilitation Center of East Carolina (Wild ARC) for her insight! If you encounter an injured wild animal or bird, please contact Wild ARC for assistance. They are located at 1312 Old Cherry Point Rd., New Bern, 252-638-4646.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
