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

If only we could use that routine to our benefit against DUmmies.
Bush's Fault...(you get the point)
He told the vet to put it on his bill.
Yeah, those AFLAC commercials ARE annoying.
I thought it was Wabbit season.
Shredding human babies is legal, duck shredding is not.
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.
They are actually spending police time on this? I'm sure there are no more serious criminals out there.
Yet not one person tried to stop him.
But it's WABBIT season!
Critics say "Lucky" trying to feather nest with TV appearances, Duck to start Anti-Chinese resturant web ring.
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.
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.
Been banned there before, got over it quickly.
I decided spending time at DU was the leading cause of stupidity in the universe and quit.
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?
that man is a monster and it would not surprise me if he came back to finish the job. Where next will he turn his rage? Humans? I hope he doesn't have a wife and kids at his mercy
