Dear Mr. Snapper,
While it is true that turtles have to eat too, studies have shown that ducklings, because of their high fat content are a major source of the bad cholesterol that can clog arteries and create heart problems as we grow older. It's in your best interests to ease up on these bad snacking habits and to cultivate a healthier lifestyle. Perhaps you should consider becoming a vegetarian.
Feeding the ducks has been a longtime delight for the students and young children in the area. Of course not every crumb goes down their throats. A lot ends up on the bottom and gives bottom feeders like myself a much needed supplement to my diet. If there are no ducks on the pond, especially cute little babies, no one throws any bread, and I lose an important source of food.
