    Did someone on there actually chase a duck with an electric cattle prod? Why can't they race the ducks, if they have to do it, for a reward like peas rather than spooking them?

    I don't know what to think of a vet who goes around wearing a beer box on his head...

    Quote:Nope that was just my idea of payback for the way they treated those poor ducks.

    I'm sorry, but this will get just as much success in being called animal cruelty as rodeos do. [​IMG] I agree, but "fun" events like this usually don't get torn down.

    I think this one of those situations, that is a double edged sword. To most of us, who own ducks, we know it's not very nice to the ducks. It will be rare to say the least to find a duck who AT ALL enjoys this. However, it's not really "cruelty" in a law recognized way. They are not physically harming the ducks, not fighting them, etc.

    But in the end, I think it's mean. I know my ducks, are always frightened if someone starts chasing them. I would never do that to mine. Heck, I don't even like having to go after them to catch them, even if it's for their own good, because I know it makes me "scary."

    Hmm ... Wonder if I could enter and have someone release the duck while I stand at the finish line shaking The Big Yellow Cup? I'm sure I could get my entrant to run past the others for the sake of food.
