A day on the farm-When ducks attack

The weather in St. Louis is GORGEOUS today. We couldn't have asked for a better day to go to the park. Within the park there is a small farm with lots of different animals. Sophie LOVED that part.

There are also TONS of ducks and geese in the park. We were walking along the lake and we came across this one particular demonic duck. I had parked the stroller on the sidewalk and we walked about 15 feet away to look at the little family of ducks that was sleeping in the grass.

So we go to walk back to the stroller and there is this massive duck sitting in front of the stroller. No big deal right? WRONG! I went to start pushing the stroller and the thing HISSED at me! wtf? I didn't even know ducks could hiss! So I tried again. Hissed again. So I move Sophie away BC I didn't want this duck attacking her and I go back to try and get my stroller. He was taking a bath so I thought maybe I could sneak up and get it. Nope. He looks up and STOMPS HIS FOOT AT ME! And he hissed again! Ok, this duck obviously has issues so I just left the stroller and we went back and were looking at the fish a bit further down. It came time to go so I picked up Sophie and grabbed the stroller and I booked ass in the other direction.

Who knew ducks were so mean?

Here are a few pictures of the duck that was taunting me. He even looks mean doesn't he?!

Stopping to look at the goats

We stopped to look at the normal ducks also. Notice the one with the Mohawk!

This big boy was cracking me up with his buck teeth!

She thoroughly enjoyed these:

You guys always have so much fun.

that's hilarious about the duck though. When I was really young I got chased and bitten by a very angry goose so yes it's possible.

How funny! I would have been scared. What a neat feature at the park though, Aiden would love that too. I took him to a petting farm once and we were looking at ducks and chickens and stuff and one ran right up to the fence and pecked at him and scared the poor baby. It was kinda funny though.

Those pics of Sophie are so cute!

I like the pic pic too. Boy he is big.

I have been attacked by a few geese in my time. Not so much by ducks though.

Too funny! I once had a run-in with a goose when I was little - they are mean little creatures & yes, the hiss- LOTS! Glad you had a great time!

Great shots, looks like you had fun!

Except for the devil duck of course...

Ducks bite too...not sure they have teeth, but they do bite!
