Duck Tales

Here's some Friday cuteness: animal control officers in Garden Grove, CA made a rare rescue mission to save a group of 14 ducklings that had fallen into a storm drain. The article comes with a video, complete with peeps and worried quacks from the mother duck who was "frantically pacing around the drain opening" when the rescuers arrived. The officers scooped up the babes into a cardboard box and then walked them (with the mother duck following closely behind) to a nearby pond where the family was reunited. [LA Times]
