I went to go check on the hens and ducks this morning to find my runner, Quackers, dead. Her head was mutilated but still attached and her beak was gone. She had been disemboweled and her egg was sitting right next to her. We feel horrible. She and her mate, Snowflake, were very friendly and awesome ducks. Snowflake is shaken. He won't eat and sits and quacks all the time. I am hoping to find a new home for him so he won't be so lonely. I think my neighbor will take him. I suspect it may be a raccoon but am not sure. I Don't see tracks, but then again we had a really heavy snowfall over the weekend and so now everything is one giant mud puddle. We are setting the trap tonight to get rid of those creatures. They are such a nuisance. They have even clawed their way through my neighbors garage door just to get food. I am still shaking from the trama. My Dh says he will take care of her body for me. I should probably go cover her up though. Thanks for listening.
