Duck is Man’s Best Friend (Video)


U.K. resident Barrie Hayman has an interesting bond with one of the ducks he breeds. The duck in question, Star, was shunned by his siblings as a child; Hayman then decided to raise the duck himself. Now, the pair go everywhere together — Star even rides in Hayman’s car and goes for walks in his town’s main street.

Hayman told the ITN News that, while he’s trained ducks for competition before, he hasn’t trained this one. What do you think about this? Is this a sweet, if unconventional, friendship? Or is Hayman’s treatment of Star unethical and inappropriate?

Why would the writer ask "is Hayman's treatment of Star unethical and inappropriate"? Considering the man breeds ducks (and we all know where they end up) it's really something that he's befriended the lonely duck, it's lovely to see how other people react too.
