This is a duck. A Victorian duck. Look out duckie, someone is gunning for you.
Unlike most states of Australia, Victoria allows duck hunting for a limited period. The period has been suspended for a few years, but now we out of drought, Teddy Baills has restored the duck hunting season. 'Tis a queer thing to me that people like pointing guns at ducks and shooting them dead. Well, I suppose I can be a bit kinky at times, but I really don't get the shooting of birds and animals for pleasure. Why don't they do the real man stuff and go off and shoot feral pigs or something and improve the environment? At least then they could justify their weird pleasure with them doing something useful.
Funnily, co-coincidently, yesterday I noticed a duck crossing warning road sign in Albert Road. So you can shoot them dead, or kind of almost miss and leave them to a lingering death, but god forbid you drive over them and instantly kill them, especially the ducklings that are so cute.
