According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), ducks should not be kept as pets. The charity's website said that in nature, ducks are outgoing, social animals who prefer the company of many duck friends.

They spend their days looking for food in the grass or in shallow water, and they sleep with their paddling mates at night. Many of them migrate hundreds of miles each year. They fly in formation for protection and to reduce air resistance, and they can speed up to 60 mph.

The video, which was first shared on TikTok earlier in June, has gone viral, receiving over 545,600 likes, 3,122 comments and 11,200 re-shares.
