How can a duck drown?

Ducks can drown or look like they are drowning when they are mating or - the obvious answer - fighting.Male ducks ( Drakes) will fight each other for mates and if you observe them will sometimes try and mate with a female in water..this looks like he is drowning her.Female ducks will sometimes (I have seen this with my own eyes) try to drown another duck's ducklings. This is a horrible sight. The cause of these 'killings' is the natural instinct to survive. The mothers both want their ducklings to have the best chance of survival.I hope this has helped you!
