Duckpdate - The Hunters!

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I took a nasty fall in my own backyard coming home from Costco Monday night. I'm really banged up. Mabel did come over and kiss me and curl up next to me while I was writing in pain!

This Duckpdate is brought to you because Sarge is hosting a Give Us the Bird posting contest this week.

A few months back, I was hiking in the Tujunga River... one of those quiet, lazy, summer evenings. I heard a strange noise and the ducks nearby startled and moved up stream just a bit. I looked up on the levee and noticed two brats with pellet guns aiming at the ducks... but Bart and Mabel right behind them!

And even though those probably weren't MY ducks...Once you are a duck mom... they are ALL MY DUCKS! (Not sure I will ever be able to eat a Turducken again!) I promptly told those little criminals that they shouldn't be shooting at hand raised ducks and certainly not firing so close to dogs and a human. That didn't work! So I called the cops and the little creeps ran...

Just one more battle that the ducks have to face...

If you would like to join Sarge's contest, be sure to check out his blog!

Bad boys shooting at your ducks. We almost feel like we have a bit of relation to those ducks too.

Mom sends her sympathy to you -hope you didn't break anything. She is a pro on pain now.

Wow, what rotten, rotten kids! They deserved an ankle-biting fur sure! Great job protecting those little duckies and I'm sure they were quacking their thanks to you. Great birdie post again today!
