Migratory Ducks in Torrance
Mallard ducks are wandering within residential areas and city parks.
Torrance Animal Control is reminding residents that federal law strictly prohibits interfering with nesting ducks – or any other native breeding bird.
If you see Mallard families, please allow them to continue on their way, and do not try to guide or divert them. While most people associate ducks with ponds – they will seek for and use any water source available.
If your pool is selected as a water source, place a screen in front of your filter opening so the ducklings will be not be harmed.
If you encounter a sick, lethargic, injured, or dead duck, Torrance Animal Control Office will respond to pick-up the duck.
Details: (310) 618-3850.
