Would a fox take a duck back to its den? Something took one of our ducks last night. On my way home today I see the duck laying on the ground near our neighbors pond. Now whatever took it carried it through the woods and across a pasture then just dropped it. Something has been getting our chickens and ducks slowly. I shut the chickens up at night. The ducks won't go in. Now I'm going to be chasing them down and putting them in tonight. Do you think its a fox? It comes sometimes at night and sometimes in the late afternoon.
