Apparently suicide amongst ducks is on the rise in the run up to Christmas. This latest victim was clearly unable to cope with the pressures that come at this time of year.
Speculation is rife amongst the Timico Network Operations Team as to what made this particular individual “go over the edge”. On the surface what to the outside world looked like a cheery duck clearly had an inner angst.
The team offered the following possible explanations:
- The duck’s pension fund was tied up in the stock market, and Woolworths in particular
- He couldn’t face having the family over to stay during the festive period
- There are other more sinister reasons involving a knife and fork and an orange…
Whatever the explanation our thoughts are with the family. It is not known whether the trend is also being seen amongst other members of the poultry community.
If anyone can shed any more light on this tragedy please leave a comment. Remember a duck is not just for Christmas. It tastes great at any time of year 🙂
