This one is just plain wrong. According to this story, hunters have been using robotic ducks as decoys to convince real ducks that it's perfectly safe to land in their gun-infested waters. While I can't help but chuckle at the sheer cheek of it - and at the thought of a tail-waggling, wing flapping roboduck on the loose - the fact that it can apparently make cheating hunters six times more successful in their shoots really just isn't cricket. Fear not, however, the decoy seems to be getting banned left right and centre in the US. I've not heard any reports of the robots being used in the UK, but since only toffs go shooting over here, and they're all either drunk or cross-eyed from all the inbreeding to shoot straight, dead daffys aren't such a major issue.
