Operation Duck Rescue
AllOutdoor Staff 05.15.14
I came across this post on reddit today and it makes for a great feel good story.
A man saw a dead mamma duck in the road and its 7 babies running into the road after her. He pulled a U-turn and shooed them off the road. They huddled by a closed garage for warmth.
He called his wife saying “I’m bringing home 7 baby ducks! Hop online and figure out how we keep them alive.” Once he arrived home, his wife and daughters helped make a temporary home for them out of a storage bin.
The little ducks could really jump so his daughters thought to place tennis racquets over the top of the bin.
The ducks were finally settled in with a comfy shelter, a heat lamp, food and water bowls.
They survived the night and now he and his family are looking to find them a permanent home! Such a great story, plus the little ducks are just so darn cute.
