Some problematic ducks will soon be removed from various areas throughout Richmond Hill after a decision by the Richmond Hill City Council.
At its regularly scheduled meeting Feb. 7, the council unanimously approved a contract with the United States Department of Agriculture for the removal of Muscovy ducks from areas in the city.
The ducks have caused problems citywide, Parks and Tree Department Director Harvey Lashley said. But the ducks are more of a headache in the Piercefield Forest area, Mainstreet Subdivision and Plantation Apartments.
"The USDA came out and spent some time looking at this and they think we have a real problem," he told the council.
