Cute Unlikely Animal Friendship Ends In Horror As Duckling Devours Labrador
Norfolk, VA -- The unlikely heartwarming friendship between an adorable baby duckling and a delightfully charming labrador ended in violence Tuesday as the partial remains of Duke the labrador were found in the backyard.
An offbeat pairing from the start, Duke and the baby duckling struck up their relationship back in July during the Fosters annual Independence Day barbeque. Onlookers remember seeing an excited dog and a seemingly small and innocent duckling meeting by the edge of the yard along some fencing. The two were nearly inseparable and all signs pointed toward a long-lasting union, maybe something like five to seven years --the average lifespan of a duck.
Unfortunately for Duke, the small duckling had a darkside. Tiny bloody duck footprints were found around the grisly scene in the yard yesterday. The duckling has not been seen since.
