    Hi we live in Mount Hope Ontario in a section of town that the city considers to be "residential". A disgruntled ex mother-in-law on mine that lives 15 mins away from me recently called animal control on me in an effort to have our ducks taken away. I am working now to keep our pets where they are. My two sons have spent the past 2 and a half yrs learning all about ducks as we've raised them and its been a wonderful experience for us all. We can't imagine our lives without our pets now. Our neighbours on either side of us enjoy us having ducks too. They have no complaints whatsoever. And all our neighbours across the road have no idea we even have ducks. We live on a lot that is 100x190 and our backyard is large and the ducks have free run of the yard. Our backyard is completely fenced in as well. We keep our coop clean and our pond and grass cleaned up too. Our ducks are well cared for and the vision of health. This ridiculous that someone with so much hate would go to this extent to hurt not only me but also her grandson. What a vicious attack. It makes my heart break :(

    I hope they do nothing about the ducks, I love my ducks and would be terribly upset if someone tried to take mine away. Keep us posted about your ducks. So hope nothing happens.
