Papa Goose get's a bit cranky if Mr. and Mrs. Mallard get too close to the peeps. Probably because one of his peeps went missing. Yes, there once were four and now there are three.
I did hollar at and fussed out two rotten little heathen boys out of my yard. They were throwing rocks at the peeps and threatening to kill them. I never left my back porch. They ran and stood in the neighbors yard, pointing BB guns at my house and said I was "an ugly old lady that was interferring with their day." I have absolutely no tolerance whatsoever for cruelty to anything. Not critters, elderly, children, nothing! I was about to use my Clint Eastwood "Come on punk, make my day" when the brats ran away. They haven't been back and I know where they live if they try that again. I was so upset over their behavior not only to critters, but to an adult as well. They couldn't be more than 9 years old. All I could think about was what their teachers must have to deal with every day. Very upsetting and truly very sad.
