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.
