I was sitting on the couch watching tv. Two of my dogs were sitting by the front window and started growling. I told them to hush but they wouldn't stop. Then, I notice that they are looking down watching something. I'm thinking there is a squirrel or a cat or something. So, I go to the window and look down and see a duck tail!!! I open the door and there is my female Muscovy, who was supposed to be in the backyard! So, I grab a towel but I'm afraid she'll run out to the road. I go around and unlock the fence and open the gate hoping to herd her into the backyard. She had other ideas. After 15 minutes of herding her, she goes into my neighbors yard which luckily is not fenced. I grab a sheet and head over to hopefully throw it over her. As I approach, she springs up and flies to the top of my 6 ft privacy fence. I waited for her to fly back into the yard. So, even though my duck's wing is clipped she has no problem clearing the fence. Scared the poop out of me. Needless to say, she will be staying in the covered duck run from now on.
