We have lived in Villagio since I was a year old, and we have now been here for nine years. As I have a lunch break at the same time as my friends, we always go walking near a lake in our community. This time there were a few ducks near the lake. We walked a few rounds around the lake, and while we were on our second round, we saw a duck that looked different from all the others.
We went down to take a closer look at the duck; it looked normal, but it had some colours sticking out of its body. We went closer and realised that they were needles with coloured tips! We tried to get it to come closer to us, but it would not come. We thought for a moment while my mom caught up with us to see why we had stopped. We all tried again but failed to bring the duck closer to us.
We thought of calling the front office to inform them of the duck’s condition. My mom said that after dropping off my friend, she would call the front office. We were unable to connect immediately and only as we neared our house, the call got connected. We informed the person what we had seen and told her the exact location. She immediately said that she would check it out and would get immediate help if needed. We thanked her and hung up.
Try to help animals in need.
