Duck X-ray reveals 'alien head'

2006-07-02 12:04

  鸭子肚中藏外星人?

  The International Bird Rescue Research Center in Cordelia plans to raise funds with an unusual duck X-ray. The bird came in with a broken wing, but when Marie Travers, assistant manager of the center, radiographed(拍X射线照片)the duck, she was stunned(惊讶地)to see a very clear image of what appeared to be the face, or head, of an extraterrestrial(地球外的)alien in the bird's stomach.

  "Marie looked at it and all she could say was 'unbelievable,'" said Karen Benzel, public affairs director for the rescue center, which has been rescuing sick and injured birds for more than three decades.

  Unfortunately, the duck died quickly and quietly of its injuries.

  Initial reports from the center claimed the cause of the alien face was never determined, but Benzel said she was still awaiting results of a necropsy(验尸).

  Either way, the center has come up with a way to turn its alien encounter into a fundraiser(筹款人)for the center. It will auction off the X-ray on eBay.

  The one-of-a-kind(独一无二的)image, which measures 17-by-14 inches, will be sold along with a certificate of authenticity(真实性). All proceeds will go toward funding the center's rehabilitation(复原)programs.

  The auction begins Sunday.

  Note:

  国际禽类抢救中心为了筹集中心修建资金,准备在周日拍卖一张奇异的鸭子X射线照片。在这张照片中,可以很清晰看到鸭子腹中有一张外星人的脸。由于鸭子到达中心时就伤了一只翅膀,很快就死去了,所以到现在也不清楚那张脸到底是什么东西。
