Raising an animal isn't exactly the easiest of tasks. It can sometimes be difficult to come up with the money or find the time to properly care for your companions.
It is estimated that 62% of American households own at least one pet, with many having more than one. Each year, Americans spend upwards of $50 billion on their companions, but almost all will tell you what a joyous reward the experience can be. With this in mind, it's hard to imagine the daunting task of raising over 600 ducks and 170 baby ducklings.
Matt McDougall is doing just that in an effort to raise free range and ethically cared-for animals. While the task may be difficult, it often results in some pretty heartwarming moments like this one.
