    I am trying to grab the attention of the media because no one working for the city seems to care. If you have a Facebook page, please visit and like the page "For the love of Muscovy ducks". I want as many people as possible to share the post with my boy, Chi's pictures that contains the hashtags. Here's what the post looks like:

    Please share this!!! I need help for my boy, Chi, and his friends! They are limping and my boy is just getting worse!! A vet already saw them, put one of their friends down and let them go back to the pond. They claim that it's just obesity and it doesn't make sense that they'd all have this problem at the same time when they're all different ages and sizes!! Please share the hashtags so that the news can see how many people care and help these poor babies before it's too late!!! We need attention for them to get the pond checked for poison. Sharing would make a BIG impact! It means the world to me!!!! ‪#‎Fortheloveofmuscovyducks‬ ‪#‎Fortheloveofducks‬‪#‎Justiceforchi‬ ‪#‎Justiceforchiandhisfriends‬

    Since I keep getting the same questions, I will answer that, no, it is not bumble foot or even a vitamin deficiency. That doesn't even make sense because the same thing happened to all the ducks that are different ages and sizes. We think it's poison. Even my friends think that the vet said obesity just to shut me up. These ducks are in pain though and my boy got worse!!! Please help me grab the media's attention for them by sharing the post and hashtags. It would mean the world to me!!! <3

    Some quick googling tells me that if the pond is stagnant it might be botulism...

    There won't really be much they can do for them. Most likely it'll just result in some non-potable no swimming signs.

    Restrict the ducks from the pond, have a necropsy done and move on.
