Olive was rescued by a very kind soul after a kid who didn't want to take care of him anymore tried to throw him in a lake. Domestic ducks like Olive cannot survive on a lake in the wild. They do not fly, and have no way to protect themselves against predators or migrate before winter. Domestic ducks that are dumped do not survive long, so Olive is a very lucky boy! Olive was very loved by his rescuer, who moved overseas and had to find just the right place for him. We are so thankful she found Heartland! When Olive first arrived he was very attached to people, but soon (thanks to our other resident ducks) Olive learned how to live his best duck life.
