(Scroll down for video) A duck owner was slapped with a lawsuit after a duck attacked a woman who was walking down her street, according to court proceedings in Washington.

Cynthia Ruddell of Estacada, said that the duck belonging to Lolita Rose, attacked her after wandering down the street.

Gregory Price, an attorney for Ruddell, said that the duck flapped its wings at her and she fell on her outstretched hand, causing her wrist to break in two places. Ruddell broke her right wrist, sprained her elbow and shoulder, and suffered an injury to her rotator cuff.

The lawsuit claims that Rose knew that the duck was abnormally dangerous and had a tendency to attack people. Rose is accused of endangering the public because she did not keep the duck contained.

The duck allegedly attacked school children waiting for their bus at a bus stop. The victim is seeking $25,000 for medical fees, and $250,000 for pain and suffering.
