We built a pond for our ducks 6 years ago and have never had a snapping turtle problem until this summer. About a month ago I happened to see a duck being attacked by a snapping turtle on our pond. Thankfully the duck got away, no chunk out of its foot but injured, and it is doing fine now. We jugged the pond and caught not just one but 3 snapping turtles! Jugged it again several more times and we have not caught anything else. Let them out of the pen after we caught the turtles and they usually run and jump in the pond. Not one single duck out of 41 ducks will get on the pond anymore! Having the pond is what has kept my ducks safe when predators come around they jump in the pond. I can not keep them locked up in the pen all of the time. It has been a month now and they will not get on the pond at all. Won't even use it to drink from during the day. What can we do to try to get the ducks back on the pond?!
