Growing up, I always loved to feed the ducks at Wheeling Park. My animal obsession clearly began at an early age. I gave up meat for several years as a kid because I realized that bacon came from pigs and at that time I was campaigning for a pot belly pig of my own. I remember this particular park was full of animals. They had a mini zoo complete with strutting peacocks. So, it was sad to return to see that you aren’t even allowed to feed the ducks anymore. Now, it’s just kind of a pond with paddle boats… hardly the magical playland that it used to be…
I’m ducking out now.
