So last Saturday morning, I was taking photos of one of my frat brothers at Virginia Tech’s duck pond. After covering my favorite areas to take photos, we decided to look elsewhere to wrap up the shoot. While we were walking and chatting, we noticed this strange-looking animal. It looked like a duck made love to a turkey and had an offspring, then that mutant bird-animal had went and had a secret lovechild with a chicken.
It was much larger than the other ducks (and geese) on the pond. It waddled with authority. It wagged it’s tail occasionally, which was strange to say the least. It also had this weird red…thing going across its face. It reminded me of something you’d see on a turkey. The cow-colored demonbird had menacing yellow eyes with a blank stare to match.
My frat brother and I sat and had a discussion about what we were looking at. The Satanbird must have heard us talking about it, because it fearlessly walked over to us. I made an executive decision and decided that we were done taking photos for the day. As I was leaving, I took one last look at the animal; this time, the hairs on its head were raised. It had like a wild mohawk. I shuddered and hurriedly walked out of the beast’s path while I was on the way back to my truck.
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS IS? I know it’s a duck…or at least I think it is. But it was strange.
