Postby Natural Camo Face Paint » Wed Apr 25, 2012 5:13 pm

I been dealing with family menbers haveing cancer being given all kinds of drugs and cemo so the question I have is Can waterfowl have cancer ever seen a tumor on a duck or goose ? Figured this would be a place to ask as it deals with Biology.

Dogs get cancer so why wouldn't waterfowl? I've shot a few 'sick' ducks in my time. Gross when you go over to pick up a prized mallard and it only weighs 18 ounces, is skin and bones, and just looks nasty.

Clinton Lake in Illinois is where I shot the sick ones and you know, now that I think about it...It's a nuclear power-plant coolant reservoir. They only had two eyes though. ;)

I think the incident that develops a cancer to a waterfowl is because it is near to a nuclear power plant.
