My 1st blog !
I was just thinking about where the last year had gone ! And I remember about this time last year I was living and working in Tampa (hurricane city). Before the 1st hurricane of the season I was driving home from Wallyworld (wal-mart), and it was a bright sunny day with a nice breeze and traffic was moving pretty good in both directions, when all of a sudden I see a baby duckling laying in the road flapping it's barely feathered wings. I couldn't help but stop and pick up this tiny little creature and take him to my shop which was on the way home and only a half mile away. After going in and looking closely at this tiny thing while it begins again to move it tiny wing's, My first thought was to get an eye dropper since I had some crackers with cheese and a little water left over from lunch, and feed this tiny animal.
I thought would call animal control and see if they would come out to pick up this bird of the wild and take to get fully checked out to make sure it is in great shape. But to my surprise when I called them they said they don't pick up wild ducks !! and that I could bring it to them and they will take it from there ! So I asked her if it were a alligator or a racoon would they come? and she said yes.
I asked her what's the difference it is still a wild animal ? she said ducks are not dangerous to humans ! and I said ok then, so I kept it over night and I drove around the next morning and found a little pond that had some ducks in it and in high hopes another mama duck would take in under her wing. I hope I did the right thing and the cute little thing grows up and not be someone's dinner.
Glad to be back in Texas! Trapher
