Oh Hell. Now the Ducks Are Attacking
A countywide duckhunt for an assailant who looked like the two above.
Never, ever, ever turn your back on a duck. Sure, they look cute and harmless, but then so do Swiss bankers. WPLG tells the story of a sweet old lady in Wilton Manors who crossed the path of some pissed-off poultry.
Carmela Dee, who is in her 80s, said she was walking down a path to her car last week when a duck that had been following her leaped up onto her back.
"I was screaming and yelling, 'Get off me, get off me,'" Dee said. "The bill was right up near my face. I hit it with my hand to get it off of me, and it went down and it came up and it bit me on the leg. Then it was up on my arm, and it bit me on the arm."
A neighbor came out of his home with a broom to shoo the aggressive duck away.
