Neighborhood Duck Hater?

We went on an evening walk and found our little ducklings all piled together for the night. Mysteriously, there was no Mommy duck around. Well... apparently there is a duck-hater in our neighborhood! We ran into our neighbor the next day scooping up two baby ducks and putting them in a box. When I asked her what she was doing, she replied that a neighbor had taken the Mommy duck away to another pond. We can only imagine she did this to leave the baby ducks unprotected so that might die. Apparently when this neighbor was confronted, she confessed the location of the Mommy duck. So my duck loving neighbor was attempting to take two of the baby ducklings to this other pond to try and locate the Mommy duck to bring her back! Is that crazy?

We think my duck loving neighbor was successful because we saw all nine ducklings and what appeared to be a mother figure with them. I'm still hoping to see her to find out how her escapade went! I'll let you know.
