Duck controversy hits Citrus Co. neighborhood

Homosassa, Florida -- A neighborhood in Citrus County has a duck controversy on their hands regarding a population of Muscovy ducks. The neighborhood association voted last month to have the ducks removed, but it's still unclear how the ducks will be dealt with.

For the Meadows community in Homosassa, bird life is not uncommon, but there is a potential problem percolating on Pelican Lane.

"They don't bother you," says Lisa Cocuzza who has lived in the Meadows for nine years and loves her feathered friends.
