    No I would put my money on the turtles. I am trying to think of a reasonable solution for you. If I had your problem, I know several people who are experienced at catching snapping turtles for food. Maybe ask around, you might have someone near you who would be able to help you.

    Geese may attack snapping turtles, but they will loose the fight.

    There is not an animal (not that wouldn't kill your ducks first) that will fight and win against a snapping turtle. You are really going to need human intervention.
