This Plan is Unacceptable
No, this duck is not an Endangered Species in Florida, in fact they are not a native bird here at all.
And, if you live anywhere else, this may seem pretty trivial.
They are after all, just a bunch of ducks, right?
There is a town near us called Ocala and they are having a problem with some ducks and the answer that they have come up with for the second time, is to kill all of them.
Has anyone considered giving these unwanted ducks to people who might want them for pets or to put in the ponds on their property?
Aren't there parks all over the US where they may, perhaps be sent to live?
It seems like there just has to be another choice besides killing all of them, again.
This story describing the Ocala City Council's plan is sickening and if after reading it, you too are sickened, please make a call!
