    Today at school I was walking to the locker rooms to put my things away and I see everyone at the large front windows pointing and laughing and the gym teacher talking about called animal control. I look over and a duck is laying there with a broken neck crumpled the female walked away from it afterwards. All these cheerleaders and softball players sat around pointing and laughing at this dead duck while one girl sat there and cried over it. I walked away I was mad and disguisted that someone could just think its funny that the poor duck suffered, because later I found out the duck didn't even die right when it hit the window it tried to walk away and finally died and everyone laughed at it all the while. People are cruel, parents need to teach kids to respect the enviroment and the things in it.

    I am so sorry you had to witness that. I will never understand the adolescent mind of humor in such things but it has always been that way. Guess it makes them feel superior or maybe it makes them feel like the "fit in". It is something I have witnessed in my youth and did not understand then and still do not. I know my children know better. It is also not something that most adults discuss with their children. The TV programs and games and such today are very violent and bloody so seeing a dead animal is not such a big thing I guess.

    Thank goodness it was you there and not my 12 yo, she would have stormed through the teachers, tried to help the duckie and probably been suspended before it was over. She is VERY sensitive about animal welfare.

    Thank you for caring about the ducks...you have a good heart.
