no Fonzie = duckling slaughter

no Fonzie = duckling slaughter
When Fonzie was a year old I trained him to protect our chickens and ducks. If he heard them making any sort of unusual noises he would hurtle down to them, barking fiercely. He never hurt them, and they were not afraid of him. For four years we had no fox attacks. Within a week of his death, we have now had a fox raid on our five two-week-old ducklings. Four had their necks bitten through and were disembowelled. Only one survived, and was cowering in the back of their nest box, but it was so badly injured, I killed it. Just awful.
