The farm is quiet and peaceful. The horse, cow, pig and sheep are all enjoying the afternoon until Duck waddles in and starts yelling “DUCK!” All the animals, believing that Duck is mistaken and confused, become frustrated and try to explain that not all animals are ducks. Amidst the chaos, it becomes clear just what Duck was meaning with his emphatic word. It wasn’t to label the animals as Ducks, but to warn the others of approaching danger. Maybe Duck should have been yelling “RUN!”
