  • Description

    Ten ducklings following their mother across a suburban street in a Milwaukee, Wisconsin suburb the other day were too small to walk with her across the sewer grate, and one by one fell in. A woman who was on her lunch hour and saw the incident promptly phoned for help, and shortly after - as there is no department specifically assigned to rescue ducklings - Fire Department, Civil Works and Humane Society workers were on the scene.

    The sewer cover was paved into place, and worker were unable to lift it. The solution? -- the men added a net into the opening , snared the ducklings and manoeuvred them back out. while their mother watched.

    All ten were soon safely placed in a basket, and were then taken to the Humane Society where they will be kept until they are old enough to be released. Officials say that this will be better for them than to try to return them to their mother.
