    Thanks for promoting the well-being of App State ducks! It is definitely important to avoid stressors like dogs, people, predators, noise, and cars that can disturb the ducks in their environment.

    Something to think about:
    What germs are in the duck pond? Do you really want to jump in it?

    Not only are the ducks domesticated, but many of them have their wings clipped, which mean they are physically incapable of flying away to safety during football celebrations. And even if you don’t care about the safety of the ducks, you should care enough about your own health and safety to not jump in. Jumping into any shallow body of water could result in serious injury, but jumping into a pond that is used as the personal bathroom of several ducks and turtles could cause an infection to start in your open cuts, nose, ears, mouth, etc. I am a huge fan of App State football and love to celebrate our wins, but this is an inherently bad way of going about it.

    Not to mention…there is nasty stuff in the water. Duck Chlamydia can be found in the water and can make humans sick. You will most likely have pink eye and a horrible cold. The water needs to be used by DUCKS/TURTLES ONLY!
