Quack! means Help!

Engine 5 rescued 2 baby ducks from the storm drain at Barberry and Linden on Friday night. They attempted to catch the mother as well and relocate them all to a nice new home near a pond. The mother would have none of this! We did not want her to give up and leave the area or injure her in trying to catch her. That would leave us with 2 baby duck orphans!

It was felt the best course of action was to get them all back together and let mom deal with getting them all home. That’s what we did and they all waddled off together and lived happily ever after. There are no pictures of this event; it was just too dark in the area they were.
