Post Says These Chessies Are "Playing" with Ducks

The Metro section of yesterday's Washington Post contains one of the most unintentionally hilarious news items I've ever seen. Under the headline "Fowl play" appears a photo of a 14-week-old Chessie hungrily chasing down a farm-raised drake mallard. Below that, a 9-week-old Chessie uses its paw to pin a hen mallard and lick her head. The photos, plus some that didn't appear in print, are available online. See photos 6-11 (9 and 10 were print published.)

The Washington Post ran a Potomac River duck-hunting story yesterday that's pretty misleading (as a Potomac waterfowler, I feel qualified to make that statement).
