Brent Braaten, from Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada, is still trying to figure out why he received a three-headed duck in a mystery post from China. 

Brent, 42, who works in a brewery says that the crazy post came with only a few instructions, that is first it should be ventilated for 2 to 3days and secondly, a hairdryer should be used on the mutated ducks to 'fluffy the feather.'

The man said:

"I received the package last Tuesday. It was an ordinary looking box. Inside the box was another box. Inside that box was a lot of packing material."

"As I tore into the plastic a duckling's head emerged. I physically jumped back from the package. I was shaken - no one expects a dead animal in the mail."

"When I gathered the courage to investigate further, I found two more heads. Someone had sent me a mutant three-headed duckling in the post!"

Adding:

"It was addressed to me so I feel like it was either sent to me by a friend who wanted me to experience a whimsical mystery or an enemy who wanted me to possess a cursed object."

Brent was later asked if he has offended someone which resulted in such a cynical gift sent to him, he said that he doesn't think he wronged someone enough to go to such sinister lengths. 

"I'd like to think that people generally like me and consider me an affable guy,"

"I've had some bad breakups, though, so it could be an ex-lover."

Brent says that maybe in a drunken state he made such bizarre order and for so he even checked his bank records as he assures that this action won't be out of character for him if he was drunk. However, his bank account shows no such records.

He said:

"It fits my modus operandi."

"I work at Good Robot Brewing Co. and a week after a staff party we were delivered a 20-foot-tall wacky inflatable waving spaghetti arm man that had certainly been purchased during that party."

"But I have scoured my bank records. There are no mysterious transactions."

Despite creeping out initially, Brent plans on petting the ducks for now and is even thinking of names to give them. 

"I am torn between Cerberus - after the three headed dog that guards the gates of hell in Greek mythology - or Howard the Duck."

"Howard the Duck is a character from a terrible movie from the 1980s. All three heads would be Howard but I would refer to the creature in the plural form."

The best part of this sinister gift is that it led Brent to be reunited with his old pal. 

He said:

"I have had a multitude of people claiming that the duck is theirs or offering to take it off my hands."

"The best thing that has come of this is my childhood friend who moved away when I was young heard the story and reached out. I hadn't heard from him in about 20 years!"

"All in all, the real gift has been just the opportunity to experience a little whimsy and magic."

Adding: "I don't mind if the person who sent this ever reveals themselves but I would like them to know that I am grateful."

 

Brent says he has mailed the sender of this duck and is eagerly waiting for his response.
