Sorry to dissapoint. I could care less what duck lady does to entertain herself, really as long as it doesn't affect me. Anyways I think she has come to the realization that she is in over her head with feeding the ducks. They have literally taken over and she has been seen shooing them with a broom because she can't even feed her dogs or cats without them eating the food. As for you and your GF, man you guys seriously need to find some different type of excitement. Me & my husband we just sit around and laugh at neighbors like you.

You were probably my old neighbor, my gf and I used to be those people who fed the ducks and did it even more knowing it really agitated the neighbor. She was a rotten person who sat on her porch and stuck her nose into everyones business, is this you?

I was always told they are too fatty and gamey for human consumption, but the species themselves are actually popular and harvested in France. I bet if they are raised on grain, their gameyness would disappear. maybe there is a commercial use for them if they have become over populated and a nuisance.

And so the Lord bestowed upon mankind in South Florida, a wrath beyond that of Hell itself. Not for justice, but for fun.

"BEHOLD" He cried, "here you shall take the torture of ducks, Hispanics, and iguanas! This paradise shall be lost forever, for punk gangs with guns have fouled my work". jk 3:27.47 (...hike!).

something bad will happen to the people/kids that did this, treating animals like this is wrong.

I thought ducks wer considered pests. Besides this looks like a classic case of duck hunting. Nothing wrong with that.

Its not like they tried to have sex with it.

Look guys - there is something emotionally wrong with a child that is capable of being so cruel to an innocent animal. That isn't a child I want living in my neighborhood.

Maybe the ducks that were here long before you think you are the pest, but they don't go around shooting your worthless ass with arrows.

Not to sound mean.....first I'm a wildlife stewart.....but Muscovy ducks are not native to South Florida...they were introduced. In fact, they try to mate with the native ducks, therefore squeezing the native population of mottled and mallard ducks out. I'm not condoning this act, what I am saying is that perhaps these muscovy ducks should be rounded up and relocated back to their native Mexico or euthanized.

Maybe after that the Native population of ducks will start to re-establish the surrounding areas. Native ducks are more skiddish around people...so the chance of an incident like this happening agiain will be reduced.

This is so sickening. And I'm assuming that who ever did this attrocity thinks (s)he is an intelligent member of our society. What kind of intelligence does it take to kill a harmless duck? Real brave, huh? Straight out of the caveman age. What a wimpy sick excuse for a human being you are. True justice would be to reverse the situation and have it done to you. I think I'd even pay to see that. You go, you disgusting POS he-man.

I can state with absolute authority calling the cops with do absolutely nothing. My wife and I found two men trying to kill a duck in a public park. We confronted them and called a park ranger over, he said we should have minded our own business, if the duck had been killed he would dispose the body.

Welcome to lying, cheating, South Florida folks, where the local law enforcement actually encourages the torture of animals.

That says a lot about someone of your caliber. Takes a lot of guts, macho or whatever you try to convince yourself you've got, to brag about that. Bet you also pull the wings off of flys too huh? Big boy!

I have to agree. What a bunch of idiots. An idiot would have a higher level of intelligence than whoever did this to a helpless duck. Lowest level of lifeform.
