COSHOCTON, OHIO- An Army veteran wants a small town to change its law that prohibits him from keeping ducks in his yard.
Darin Welker says the ducks help relieve his post-traumatic stress disorder.
He was cited for violating the ban on keeping farm animals in West Lafayette, about 60-miles east of Columbus.
Welker says he injured his back while in the National Guard and his 14 ducks provide physical and emotional therapy and ease his depression.
Village leaders say they are also military veterans and would not do anything to slight other veterans.
Welker's lawyer says leaders are looking at the possibility of changing the law.
