$1000 Duck's

Hi Guys, this Is a little story I picked up when I was at Kakadu NP in the Top End.
These ducks are called Radgah Shelduck's (AKA Burdekin Ducks), I saw loads of these in Kakadu and while I was on a boat trip our guide said that he call's them $1000 ducks. I'll explain why, if someone kills a Radgah Shelduck, they get a fine of $500, but because they pair for life the other duck of the pair basically dies of a broken heart, so thats another $500 they'd have to pay, adding up to $1000, hence the name.
