photographing and learning about wildlife
Around 19:00 PDT, I saw this raccoon run down a mallard duckling, kill it, and then eat most of it.
Behind an apartment complex in Eugene, OR.
The video attached is very graphic and is not for the weak of heart nor the weak of stomach. I felt queasy as I filmed it, but it is part of nature that I think needs to be shared. Viewer discretion is highly advised.
