Ducks Won't Be Euthanized
Hundreds of Tuscawilla Park's best known resident's were able to duck death- after a wildlife organization stepped in to help.
The city of Ocala had planned on euthanizing two hundred of it's Muscovy ducks at Tuscawilla park.
The ducks are considered a nuisance because of their excessive breeding and mating.
By state law they can not be transported.
Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary, a rescue organization, found the ducks a new home.
Keith Belisle with OWLS says,
'We've been very fortunate to find the private individual who is willing to take the responsibilities of taking them on their property and feeding and clipping their wings."
That new home is with an anonymous owner at a private residence within the county.
The ducks wings will be clipped on a regular basis to ensure they stay on the property.
