Another brood of adorable muscovys ducklings wipe out contained by 2 days, is here anything I can do?
I live on a canal in south florida and its very upsetting to see many batches of baby ducklings completely wiped out surrounded by days. I used to think that raccoons and large birds were the key predators of the innocent ducklings, but after witnessing horrific underwater attacks this past weekend, im convinced its either snapping turtles or the colossal fish (bass, carp) in the canal. Is there anything I can to at tiniest give these ducklings a chance? After watching 3 ducklings get sucked lower than the water, I was so furious that i was equipped to run out to the canal and just start clubbing the fish in the dampen with a baseball bat. (obviously I didn't do that). I found a pet store that's sells duck and wild waterfowl food, so i other through some out when i see them. After that the mother carelessly swims right into the canal setting up the poor adorable ducklings to a watery grave. Any suggestion on this situation or of is it better to just sit back and let spirit run its course?
I'm so sorry to hear that
If you can't bear to see it, just look elsewhere!
