With a storm drain too deep to only get to in and seize the wayward ducklings, two EPD officers and a consultant from Evansville Animal Control go “all in” to reunite the newborn ducks with their mom.

Kudos to these officers for their willingness to not only reply to what I picture was a special call over the radio for them, but for also accomplishing everything they could to make confident they reunited the toddlers with their mom. With so lots of stories these times picking to target on a handful of officers who step outside the house the lines, this story is a good reminder that 99.9% of officers who swear an oath to uphold the regulation and guard and serve the citizens in their towns and cities are superior folks who are willing to leap in and help any individual in people locations, together with the feathered ones.
