Many ducks are unfortunately killed each year from people throwing rocks or other missiles, or hit and killed by bicyclists, people on skates or skateboards, cars, etc.<br> + <br> + Ducks hate bread since they can choke and die from eating bread (I've seen numerous ducklings choke and die senseless deaths -- commonly called "impacted crop" per the rehabilitors). Unfortunately, endless people with trailer-park mentality feed bread due to monkey see monkey do syndrome. Giving bagels is even worse, followed by junk food such as popcorn, chips, etc.<br> + <br> + Duck rape is common and part of their behavior and occurs mostly from April to June. Unfortunately, the drakes can drown the hen when the rape occurs on water because they hold her head underwater. It's common to see seven to ten drakes gang raping a helpless and exhausted hen. You can see the hens missing feathers on their heads and neck as a result of these ongoing rapings.<br> + <br> + Since feeding bread harms and ends up killing the ducks, it's clear to see feeding ducks DO NOT contribute to the over-population. Since the body of water is a sewer (along with predators), the duckling mortality rate is north of 80% and is a death rate that is 4 times what happens in nature. The arboretum is a death trap for ducklings. The overpopulation is the result of people abandoning pet ducks (i.e, the runners, blue swede, campbells, pekins, etc) to die in the arboretum and a small number do survive. As much as 40 or more pet ducks are abandoned each year and due to the math concept of Law of Large numbers, abandoning 40 ducks or more ducks each year will result in an overpopulation problem. Abandoning your pets is a crime under the theory of animal cruelty, which falls under local or county laws.<br> + <br> + As of June 2009, there were over 600 ducks in the Arboretum, and as of April 2010, there is barely over 100 ducks remaining; these statistics exclude the over 200 ducklings that die each year from living in the sewer -- it's a horrible place for ducklings and only the strongest survive. The main cause for the loss of over 500 ducks in 10 months is people giving food (like bread) that harms these ducks and make them sick and thus easier for the predators to kill the ducks.<br> + <br> + Lastly, the official policy of the Arboretum is they don't care about the ducks since the ducks eat the plants and other vegetation. This is an arboretum as in arbor means trees like a living tree museum. That is why the facist Arboretum officials use poor proganda in a vain attempt to fool the educated minds in Davis. There is NO duck overpopulation today AND if the Arboretum Officials remove abandoned ducks in a timely fashion, they will be no overpopulation in the foreseeable future. Remember, the ducks can have all the ducklings they want, but with a high mortality rate, it's mathematically impossible for dead ducklings to contribute to the overpopulation problem. Don't be followed by the poorly-constructed facist proganda. --["Users/jasoncw"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Duckshttp://daviswiki.org/Ducks2010-05-16 20:07:12LeeY <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Ducks<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 4: </td> <td> Line 4: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * There needs to be more signs discouraging duck feeding - they're there, but few and far between.
