Snowmobilers kill 57 ducks in Fond du Lac County; days after deer killing
Just days after snowmobilers killed five deer in Waupaca County, riders in Fond du Lac apparently rounded up 57 mallard ducks and ran them over with their machines.
Necropsies will be performed today on 20 hens and 37 drakes.
Department of Natural Resources warden supervisor George Protogere says he wants to make sure they died from trauma.
He did not believe a disease outbreak could have been involved.
