The power of teamwork helped reunite a family of ducks in Burlington on Tuesday.
The duckings had fallen into a storm drain on Monce Road, Burlington Animal Control reported. This is in front of Lake Garda Elementary School.
They said the school bus driver noticed the mother duck hopping over the storm drain when she was crossing the road, and all her duckings fell in the drain, four feet down, when they tried to hop over it too.
One of the Burlington Animal Control officers, along with a Farmington Animal Control officer, ended up plucking all 12 of the ducklings out of the storm drain.
They brought the ducklings back to their nervous mom, who led her little ones back to a nearby lake.
