OMG, they really are just about the cutest lil babies ever. I loved watching them waddling away with their happy momma. Nice story Cal, thanks.

"I noticed that the duck seemed to be in distress and I thought that possibly it might be sick and as I came over I heard the cheeping from inside the grate," Cobun said in a video shot by the college.

The duck was upset because seven of its chicks had fallen down the grate and they couldn't get out.

Good story on an otherwise dismal day in news. Thnx Cal.
