Ducks win in French court case
Ducks have won a court case allowing them to keep on quacking.
A French court has rejected a neighbour's complaint about the racket from a small farm in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
Retired farmer Dominique Douthe told Reuters: "The ducks have won. I'm very happy because I didn't want to slaughter my ducks."
The court in the town of Dax ruled the noise from her flock - which includes around 60 ducks and geese - was at an acceptable level, despite complaints from a new resident who moved from the city about a year ago.
The neighbour moved into a property about 50 yards away from the flock's enclosure before started the dispute.
