Definitely one of those "weird news" stories, but good news for the duck. If the same happened to my dog, I'd expect the same.

like the old joke: why is johnny running in circles?..

shut up! or we'll nail his other foot to the floor

a pair of mallards have taken residency in my vernal pond. the drake and a local squirrel got into a squabble over the corn I leave out for the deer.

never saw this before. the squirrel jumped on and bounced off the drake. the duck shook the minor attack off and they waddled back into the woods. waited for the squirrel to leave and came back and ate their breakfast.

the same pair have managed to stay alive and return for 3 yrs now. it's a safe place for their little ones. they take off in june because if it is not a rainy summer, the pond dries up. there is usually plenty of water until then.

the wood frogs started singing last week, so spring is here

The story said "The 21-year-old suspect pleaded not guilty Thursday to felony animal cruelty charges.". I wouldn't call him a kid.
