Ducks Blown Off Their Feet by the Wind [video]

At a first look it might seem funny, but imagine the desperation of mother duck here…and also how the little ones get hurt. Whoever filmed this should have gathered the tiny fluffy balls from the ground and rescue from the awful wind storm :(

    No, they are alive and ok, but it was mean for the guy who filmed not to go save them :(

    it wasn’t mean. if he had “saved” them he would have killed them. Mother ducks, or most wild animals for that matter, will not accept young that have been handled by people.

    Taylor,

    Thank you for pointing out a very true fact. As people we often over look that animals don’t react to help the same as people do. The mother duck may very well have left her chicks to die, had a person stepped in and “helped”.

    You are both so wrong I’m surprised you haven’t died acute wrongitis. That urban legend has been debunked repeatedly by science and this information has been disseminated all across the media. I mean shit its on the wikipedia page of common misconceptions.

    Please do some research before you open you mouth holes agian.

    Also the name of this website is unfortunate.

    While it may be a misconception that animals won’t accept their young after being handled, imagine the stress of the mother duck when a large moving being towers over her babies as they’re being blown about. Wild animals are driven by instinct and fear things that are bigger than them, hence why they generally tend to leave a place where there are many humans. While the person may have saved a few ducks (THAT CLEARLY DID NOT NEED TO BE SAVED AS WE SEE BY THE END OF THE VIDEO), the consequences of muddling with a fear stricken Mother Mallard may have caused the plan to back fire.
    People are so stupid, you think you know what’s right for wild animals that survive the harshest conditions every day, while sitting in your heated 2 story house on your fucking laptop.
    Let nature do its thing. Humans are differently conditioned than wild animals.

    They looked ok. Like someone said, at first funny, but after the second hit, not funny. But once all settled, they looked good.

    Interesting vid, though.

    If the ending hadn’t turned out like that I would have cried, horror-stricken.

    It’s nature people. If the ducks live the ducks live. If they die they die. Circle of life.

    It’s not like it was some unnatural wind coming from an helicopter propeller. Let earth do it’s thing.

    Also, the ducklings downy feathers help soak up the impact, so the wind probably didn’t hurt them at all. Look up what wood duck chicks go through when they leave the nest if you don’t believe me.

    Dammit! Now I will have to get some crispy duck from my local chinese for dinner. Yum.

    The ducks are fine. There ain’t no point in helping them. Danielle, I’m pretty sure that considering they are in abuilt up area the duck will have come across humans before. So what are you banging on about “stress”? You are people, you are stupid.

    Mother duck would certainly take her chicks back. If the Filmer had interfered, it would have caused more stress to the animals, making it harder for them to recuperate. All was well, just a gust of wind.
