No ducks were harmed in the making of this video…

During Zulte-Waregem’s match against Lokeren in the Belgian Pro League last weekend, African-born forward Habib Habibou ejected a duck from the field of play with a shocking combination of nonchalance and vigour. Cue boos from the stands and an inevitable outcry from animal rights nutters. Relax, people – at least Habib didn’t boot the duck into row Z, as his manager instructed him to.

The duck’s family is currently plotting a revenge attack on Habibou’s mock Tudor mansion. (Yes, they have mock Tudor mansions in Belgium too… maybe.)
