    When I took two year olds that i was baby sitting there, I saw the male duck pick up a duckling and drown him to death. it was traumatic for all of us. at first I thought maybe he was bathing him but the baby died.

    • Nature Vs. Nurture says:

      Unfortunately nature does some very cruel things. If you are offended by such things, or fear the children you are taking out and about will be traumatized, perhaps you should avoid nature. And apparently you are an eyewitness to what happened to the ducklings, perhaps you should call Parks and let them know. Instead of allowing people to post comments about not feeding them etc.
