Elvis is dead - Good bye Elvis duck!

Today evening we went to yoga early without locking in the chicken and ducks. When we came back, we saw our Elvis duck being attacked by a python snake. He was dead already at the time so we let the snake have him so that after it has eaten Elvis, we could catch and relocate it. So, here he is, on the way to the snake's stomack. Just his orange legs sticking out.

The nature is so cruel.

We got Elvis in 2004. He was found in our friend's suburb in Townsville. We took him to Woodstock and from there with us to Cairns. Remember how he used to play with Bluey.

And here's the video on relocation of the snake

And here are memories from the duck family. In the beginning Mavis hatched little ducklings. The father Elvis can be seen on the video too, and he can be heard all the time.

yes, nature is cruel enough without human contribution. thanks for relocating the snake instead of calling for extermination like what is happening here.
