One way to past the time

Three Oregon Ducks basketball players have been cited for duck on duck violence.

Police ticketed three freshmen Ducks basketball players Monday night on suspicion of shooting pellet guns at ducks and geese in Alton Baker Park.

Police received a report of three men shooting in Alton Baker Park at 11:08 p.m. Monday night. Officers arrived and watched the trio shoot about 20 rounds from what was determined to be a pellet gun.

The three headed towards the restrooms, and officers saw Dunagin throw up his hands, followed by a splash. Officers later recovered a gun from the pond. Two other pellet guns were located elsewhere, police said. Police are holding the two Powerline brand guns and a Crosman brand gun as evidence.

Hey kids, don't take out your frustrations about a craptacular season on those poor animals!
