Police Officer Helps Ducklings Cross Freeway (Video)

Here’s a feel-good story for your afternoon: a police officer in Washington State spotted a mother duck and her young ducklings trying to cross SR-512 during the morning rush hour. In order to ensure that they crossed safely, he temporarily slowed/stopped traffic—and gave them a police escort all the way to the other side!

There are good people that care about pets and wildlife. A very heartwarming story. In a time of so much pet abuse, it is so refreshing to see the hearts of good people. Ducks have a special place in my heart. Sometimes a Mama Mallard lay her eggs in a strange place and must march her sweet babies for a long while to get to water. I have rescued baby Mallards a couple of times. The last time MaMa layed her eggs in an Industrial Park of cement and Semi's. My daughter worked at one of the buildings and called me. I told her to see if she can find them. If we could get MaMa and babies we can get all of them to a lake. My daughter tried to find them and couldn't. That afternoon MaMa Mallard brought her babies right to my daughter's building where she works. MaMa took her babies up a couple of small steps to the door of the building and started quacking. Amazing, she seemed to know that her babies would die and she would to. My daughter carefully went to the door. Mama flew. They are pretty smart. It was like she was saying "Please save my babies. They are dieing and I have to fly to water". My daughter got all of the babies so I worked with them. They were so weak and dehydrated. I didn't want them to imprint on me because I wanted them to be free.I tried to teach them as much as I could finding bugs and worms in the grass and diving in water. I used feeder fish in water to stimulate their diving. When they fully feathered they all flew. Such a wonderful
