Oh, these mongoose! We’ve had several clutches of ducklings hatch lately, and even our poor matriarch Dee Dee lost a couple of the darling ducklings to the mongoose early yesterday morning. She had five, and then she had three, so we built yet another place to keep the rest of them safe.
She wasn’t sure at first, but I think she’s now decided it’s ducky paradise. We can’t stop watching the hot tub parties!
We will probably keep them contained for about three weeks, to be sure they are no longer mongoose snack size.
And for a more permanent solution, I am working at bringing my dogs over. They are great mousers, good with livestock, and I can’t wait until they rid us of all these mongoose!
