sad news! My dogs just barked at something outside. My husband got up to check on the ducks and something small like a muskrat or otter ran across the yard. Sure enough, he found Cricket. He said there was no blood, but there were feathers, and her body was already stiff. It makes me wonder if she had already passed earlier in the night, but that would be a big coincidence. She was kind of sickly, and she couldn’t see very well and separated herself from the other ducks.
