Not so much filling in the blanks as taking the word of the OP.

Taking the word that some ducks have been run over.

Not that Norman Bates was driving the car.

Why not just let them out of your car? Also, how did they get in there in the first place?

I think so too, vast majority of us living here have a lot of empathy and care for the well being of animals. Only a very tiny minority don't, and they're probably very deeply unhappy and troubled individuals.

This has now made it onto Sheffield Online via the Sheffield Star, accompanied by the usual knuckle dragger comments such as "Lets hope something nasty happens to him if he did on purpose", all based on the say so of one person.

Yes, as if that would be a proportionate response

She said the lady told her she would report what had happened to the RSPCA, but the charity said this week it had no record of the incident.
Well that clearly says it all.

Did anyone see this or get the numberplate?

Thanks!
Fake News! Just saying.

I just see a poll and blanked out lines. It is probably more interesting than what was written!

A very busy time to cross at 5pm I’m surprised traffic noise didn’t stop them crossing

The report went from mowing down baby ducks to maybe not seeing them.

The lady who reported it to the RSPCA has posted the reference number she was given on Sheffield Online. She's also advised that the surving ducklings were picked up by a Vet and are ok. It's good that she took the time to let people know what happened.

So many cynics and disbelievers on the forum, I can't imagine someone starting this thread for no reason. 😕

From the link:

Quote:
. . . I saw this car - I believe it was a white Audi, though someone else thought it was a Golf - drive straight into the mother duck who was crossing the road with her 10 or 11 ducklings
Now, I did not see this incident, but I am more than prepared to believe that the driver of a white Germanese binwagen is (a) a sociopath who kills animals for fun and (b) doesn’t pay attention when driving.

So it could indeed be a deliberate act of cruelty, or just an unfortunate accident.

No it can't be the latter, apparently the person who did it deserves to hang if you read the Sheffield Online comments.

There are always knee jerk reactions from the hard of thinking! Even on here sometimes.
