Four days after it mysteriously appeared in Belfast Harbor, Maine authorities still haven’t figured out where a 25-foot rubber ducky came from or why it was left there.

“Everybody loves it,” says Belfast Harbor Master Katherine Given. “A lot of people want to keep it here.”
Do you have any theories on the duck’s origin or purpose?
