Mother Duck Rescues Babies from Storm Drain
A commuter saw the mother duck hysterically walking across the street, and decided to stop and help. Another passerby soon joined and the two spotted several baby ducks stuck in a nearby storm drain -- located near 5800 South Highland Drive.
The commuters stayed with the birds until animal services officials arrived.
Rescuers pulled the baby ducks up from the storm drain, but catching the hysterical mother was a bit tougher because it kept running out into the street -- where cars passed.
The mother duck was eventually captured and reunited with her ducklings. The birds were later taken to a pond -- far from the dangers of rush-hour traffic.
