No where to waddle in Cypress

Posted: Updated:
CYPRESS, Texas -

It's a community built far from the maddening crowd around tranquil water, filled with friendly fowl.  Reason enough for some to reside in Cypress Creek Lakes.

"I think because Houston is such a concrete jungle, no offense to people who were born and live here their whole life," said resident Amanda Moles.

Amanda Moles has come to cherish the near constant flow of ducks and assorted lake loving birds in her subdivision.

"Seeing the ducks every day is so nice and there's actually two water birds over there that I've given names to.  We love them," said Moles.

But lately the winged water dwellers have encountered an arguably harsh degree of inhospitality when, as a flood control measure, the local MUD district pulled the wooden planks used by ducklings to reach land.

Resident Christian Grimaldo calls the duck walk removal slightly ridiculous and potentially cruel.

"That doesn't make any sense at all. They honestly do help the ducks because the ducks do have ducklings and they do use the boards to get to the water," said Grimaldo.

Talk around the neighborhood of forced water fowl re-location has left some here riled up.  Better, many claim to accommodate than to extricate the remnant of suburban wildlife.

"I think having a little nature, a little beauty, nothing wrong with that and I think people enjoy it," said Moles.
