My parents have a large pond and recently added four adult ducks to the pond. They grew up on a stock tank about an hour from here and managed tonsurvive just fine. Since they arrived, three have disappeared. Yesterday, the drake had an injured foot and was limping. Now he's missing. We are at a loss for what could have happened to them. It could be raccoons, but there have been no feathers on the bank to indicate that they were attacked there. I've heard of snapping turtles biting the duck's feet then dragging them under water. There are a ton of red eared sliders in the pond, not sure about snappers. Some of the bass in the pond are quite large, but I can't imagine they would be able to eat a full sized duck. Anyone in central Texas have any ideas about what could be eating their ducks? I'm scared to put mine on the pond... I don't want them to disappear too.
