This is the endearing scene in which a duck returned a boy’s flip-flop to him after retrieving it. This curious scene caught the attention of Myla Aguila, a resident of Quezon Province in the Philippines, and thankfully, she captured this priceless moment on camera. Aguila was walking through the mountainous village of Sitio Madaguldol near her home when she spotted a young boy squatting on a small hill off the road.
One of the boy’s flip-flops had fallen down the small slope and was no longer within reach. Although the boy could have easily climbed down to retrieve the flip-flop, the kind duck got there first and retrieved it for him. Rather than descend through the muck, he observed as the white duck picked up his white rubber flip-flop.
Aguila could not believe her eyes, as ducks are commonly regarded as stupid creatures that are raised for commercial purposes, primarily for their eggs. However, this video’s intelligent duck makes us reconsider.“I was dumbfounded. The duck is kind. He really helped, even though he doesn’t know the child,” Aguila wrote online. “I asked around, and people told me that the duck is not owned by the boy. But they come from that same small village so they must be friends,” said Aguila. Watch the extraordinary video here!
As seen in the video, the determined duck drops the flip-flop three times, but refuses to give up and continues to pick it up with its beak. The duck finally reaches the top and returns the boy’s slipper. ”I thought it was very sweet the way the duck kept picking up the shoe and giving it back to him.” “There is a feeling like a person,” she wrote, adding: “I will feel mercy on them because of what I saw.”
