    apparently people recently dumped a ton of domestic ducks at smithville village over by the dirt parking lot. tons of pekins, some large saxony looking ducks and khaki's. there has been domestic geese and some scovies there for a while but i doubt there will be enough food to feed all of them. a few even have angel wing. if anyone wants some more ducks this would be the place to get them. they are very friendly and were eating corn out of my wifes hand.

    I would post this on the NJ thread to see if anyone close will want them! If not many will be eaten and die of starvation... [​IMG]

    Less cruel to put a cleaver to their necks and stick them in the freezer than to abandon them in a park to starve and be terrorized by stray dogs [​IMG]

    I was in Smithville (first and last time EVER) in October while on vacation. There were TONS of geese, all over the road. It was revolting. Now adding ducks to that. Jerks.
    Isn't there an animal control officer or rescue in that area that could help?
    People suck.

    it is sad, why buy ducks if you dont know you can take care of them? atleast find them a good home. i could see a few being there for families to see and feed but theres is way more than what the food sources can supply between all them and the wild geese and mallards. i really wanted to grab 2 or 3 but i have about as many as my yard can handle comfortably already.

    Is it possible to go through animal control and sponsor a 'duck roundup and adoption event'?
