I got my young kids five ducklings to raise a couple months back. We have two acres of fenced yard that they've been doing just fine roaming in since they outgrew their pen a few weeks ago. They can't quite fly yet, but they're about 4 months old. I went out to feed them this morning, just like any other day. I found two missing. I was able to locate one right away. He was still in the yard, dead, and had two small puncture wounds in his neck (only about a half inch apart). No other sings of injury. I went out searching for my other duck, hoping to figure out what could've done this, and I found him about 100 yards away, just outside the property. His feathers were scattered everywhere in my yard in the very same spot I found the other duck. He was mauled and drug a very small distance, his bottom was ripped up, but not eaten and just left there. Any ideas as to what could've done this? I live in central Illinois. Side note: while searching for the duck that was taken off the property, I found the remains of what I believe to be my neighbors small dog, just feet away from where my duck was left. Not sure if it's related, but could be.
