CAMPBELL, Calif. (AP) - Seven weeks after a motorist intentionally killed a gaggle of ducks at a car wash, police say the case is going cold."We're reaching a dead end in the investigation," Campbell police Capt. Russ Patterson said Saturday

An Aug. 5 surveillance videotape showed a man driving up and intentionally heading for the ducks, crushing several with his car. The driver mows down several more ducks before jumping out of his car and killing some with his hands. The attack went on for 16 minutes. Ten ducks were killed.

Police received 50 to 75 calls a day in the weeks following the killings.Since then, tips have slowed and a reward fund has grown to $22,000.Lucky, one of the ducks who was injured by the car lived

t's probably the guy who takes care of the car wash. Sick of ducks taking a dump all over his property. I've had this dilemma and my boss wanted to do everything short of killing them because it's not sanitary and they poop everywhere. Guy was fed up maybe, lol.

There should be a word for this despicable action of duck murder. Perhaps anascide, from the Latin anas for the genus to which ducks belong. If the term catches on, I claim credit.

I think they should spare no expense at getting to the bottom of this. After all, it's not as if these ducks were unborn children or something.

The reason this crime needs to be solved is that the ducks were the Car Wash owners property. They were pet ducks, what value do you put on a pet? $5000 or $10,000? This is why it is a serious crime, even though it sounds silly at first blush to carry on about some ducks.

This was a case of destruction of someones property.

This is why we have police on the payroll.

Protecting and defending property rights is important.

Furthermore, it is a fact that this type of behavior often leads to evem more grizzly behavior, involving people. This person needs to be tried, convicted, and watched very carefully for the remainder of his life.

"Protecting and defending property rights is important."

I happen to like ducks. And I'm definitely in favor of the police protecting and defending property rights. But it says quite a lot about our culture that the odd destruction of some ducks gets more sympathetic responses than does the ordinary everyday destruction of human lives in abortion mills. Sorry if I can't get real excited about this story.

I just got banned from DU
Too funny! I said nothing bad at all.
If you don't call someone names and insult a whole group like they do then I guess you can't post there.
Funny it came right after a DUmmie said isn't it great how you can have the freedom to post here unlike the censored FR.
Now all my messages were deleted and I'm banned.
I'm sure you guys are used to this but Jim would not have banned me for what I said had it been the opposite belief.
They are completely socialistic.

When the day started up, everything was just ducky.

Later on, everything went quackers!

Did the perp act alone, or did he have a wingman?

Did anyone get a good enough look at him before he flew off to pluck him out of a lineup?

I understand your desire to protect human life, and if it means taking a thread about ducks, and making it about abortion, you are being a good foot solder in the war against abortion.

The deal here is that you are preaching to the choir, and your talents could be better used preaching to the DUmmies.

You mentioned that you happen to like ducks, what is your favorite type of duck?

White Pekin/Mallard cross.

We had 6 White Peking ducks, 4 males and 2 females. They would come circle the house quacking until they got their cracked corn then they would go back to the pond. We also had a Black African goose, who was a pretty good "watch dog".
