In this Thursday, July 10, 2014 photo, Iraq war veteran Darin Welker, 36, holds one of his ducks at his home in West Lafayette, Ohio. Welker, who served a year in 2005 for the Army National Guard, says his 14 pet ducks serve as mental and physical therapy for him. He's worried he'll have to give them up after village officials told him in May he can't keep them on his property. Welker was cited with a minor misdemeanor June 23 for having the ducks in his yard. He is scheduled to appear in Coshocton Municipal Court for a hearing Wednesday, July 23, 2014, and could face a $150 fine. (AP Photo/Coshocton Tribune, Trevor Jones)
