http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8543844/neglected-ducks-swim-for-first-time Above is a link I found on Ninemsn which shows neglected ducks who have been saved by animal welfare officers having their first swim in a bath. Very moving. At the start, the ducks are affraid o the water, but then one starts to enjoy himself, flapping and cleaning himself in the water. There isn't much info about the horrible person who neglected these ducks enough to not provide them with swimming water. Why would you want ducks if you're not going to give them some place to swim?!
