TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Photos showing ducks hanging out in a convenience store in New Taipei and a sign explaining that they were just there to enjoy the air conditioning during the sweltering Taiwanese summer went viral over the weekend.

On Saturday (Aug. 15), Twitter user Nala (@nalalandoz) shared a photo of two ducks standing next to a freezer and another photo of a handwritten sign at the checkout counter that read in Chinese, "Those are ducks. They aren't raised by us, they came here to cool off with the air conditioning." In the three days since, the post has gained 13,000 likes, 3,430 retweets, and 136 comments.

A couple of netizens who commented below claimed to have seen the ducks recently in a shop that is next to the Sanhe Night Market in New Taipei City's Sanchong District. One netizen wrote that the ducks belong to a Tempura stand owner next door.

In response, some netizens mentioned another convenience store where a cute corgi is often spotted. Another speculated that the sign had been put in place after the clerks had been badgered about the ducks on too many occasions.    [FULL  STORY]
