You know your animals are in good hands when this kind of thing happens – Des Moines Master Animal Control Officer Jan Magnuson was driving by the Green River Thursday, when she happened upon a Momma duck and her dozen ducklings who were trying to get over the sandbags to the river, but were unable to:
“I stopped my truck in the middle of Russell Road with all my lights on, and was able to scoop up all twelve babies and put them on the river side of the sandbags,” Magnuson said. “And momma duck flew over to them and off they waddled!”
“Have a great day enjoying weather only a duck could love!”
