CO/CSI Files: Ice Cream-Napping Swedish Duck

Amanda Z. was the victim of this drive-by fly-by ice cream-napping, so she fills us in. “Today me and my husband sat by the river in the sun, enjoying our first ice cream of the year. Then…a duck came along!”


“He tried to steal my ice cream, that cheap bastard! He only got a little nab of it, so he hovered away instead. Kind regards from Uppsala, Sweden.”




  1. Hmm, somehow didn’t need the Google Translate for that last one.

  2. Say Hi to Daniel, Amanda.

    What is it about those darn Swedish ice cream eating ducks? Glad we don’t have that pest problem here.

    Q of D- I was JUST gonna write that: I’m peeing in my pants from her calling that duck a cheap bastard!! Oh man…. bwahahaha!!!

  14. OMG I can not tell you how many times I have lost part of a sandwich in mid traverse to my mouth to a pesky sea gull.

  15. PS all nabbings were in Monterey by the way… Near the the Aquarium

    I had barely tasted my icecream while watching the sea lions at Pier 39 in San Francisco when a seagull divebombed me and took out a piece. I cut out the beak imprint in the icecream with a credit card and finished my treat. Nobody comes between me and my icecream!
