Man and duck BFF

Monday, September 12, 2011

Duckling follows ‘dad’ everywhere:
An 11-week-old duckling shunned by its family has taken such a shine to his new 'dad' it follows him everywhere – including the PUB.

Barrie Hayman, 65, cuts an unusual figure in his home town as devoted duck Star waddles behind him.

The Indian Runner Duck follows him around the shops, drinks at his local pub, watches rugby and has his own Facebook page.

Star even waits patiently in the foyer of his local Tesco as Barrie gets his groceries.

Barrie rescued Star when he was just days old and started doing a distressed 'waddling dance' – just like Mumble in the film Happy Feet – when he was put near his siblings.

"He just won’t leave me and so now we go everywhere together," said Barrie.

"I’ve not trained him to follow me, he just seems to like it and he is one fantastic duck – I’ve never known any like it before."
