Ducks have Buddha nature when we have sympathy with them. When you think about 
them in general terms, they should have no Buddha nature. Otherwise, you would 
attach to them. That is a teaching from Zhaozhou zen master.

I work at a shopping mall and there is a canal nearby and there are 
lots of ducks in the area. I feed them out of the back of the store 
sometimes, and they run towards me and I talk to them. That is fun. 

However, many people dislike the ducks because they poop a lot, and I 
have seen some people run them over with their cars when they are 
driving through the shopping center. They have contempt for the ducks 
and think that if the ducks are in the way of the car, it is OK to run 
over them. This is very sad to me.
