Neighbor slams woman’s pet duck to the ground for scaring him

In Miami-Dade County, a woman from Kendall said her neighbor killed her pet duck because he felt threatened by the animal.  The duck, named “Ma Pato”, had been Melina Ocampo’s pet for the last four years and no one from the neighborhood ever complained.

Ma Pato would waddle around near the lake at the community where Ocampo lived and eventually return home. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago when another neighbor Madelaine Jorge noticed a man and a woman near the duck and recorded a video of the man slamming the duck to the ground. Initially the woman kicked the duck, and then the man picked Ma Pato up by her neck and slammed her into the ground.

Ocampo found her pet duck dead and contacted the police. According to authorities the neighbor said the duck had attacked them. Sadly, Ocampo picked up the lifeless body of her pet. No charges have been filed.

Check out the video at the link below. CAUTION – very graphic and upsetting.

Unbelievable FLORIDA AGAIN the LAW THERE NEEDS to BE CHASTIZED !!

    If they were so “afraid” of the duck how could they pick it up and fling it like that! My heart goes out to Melina Ocampo for her loss of Ma Pato, there was no excuse for this and I hope she is able to get some justice for her loss.

    Video should be enough to charge these two wacko’s with animal cruelty. What is happening to enforcing laws to protect animals. Disgusting that these scum are not being arrested or charged with any crime against this woman’s pet duck.

    I’ve seen a duck on the attack of another duck, and I doubt very much that anyone would get near the enough to get hold of a cranky duck let alone come out unscathed if they did. Nope, not an angry duck before the abuse and killing imo. Throw the book at them plus jail time.
