Who's Been Sniffing My Ducks

The other day when I opened the duck hutch door to let the ducks out for the day I found this....

Something, or someone pushed their nose up against the wire trying to "sniff" the ducks! The door to the hutch is not built very strong so I'm VERY glad they didn't insist on getting in.

I'm so curious who or what was in the garden....probably a dog, just drooling over those delicious looking ducks....if only the ducks could talk!
