Normal police officers have saved eight ducklings from a storm sewer.
The rescue happened early Thursday evening when pedestrians saw two distraught ducks near a storm drain. The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports that the pedestrians called police when they heard peeping from a manhole cover. Police asked McLean County Animal Control for a net to get the ducklings.
Officer Mitchell Wilson climbed into the storm sewer and coaxed the ducklings into the net. Officer Melissa Zabukovec took the ducklings to a farm field and released them. Their parents, the two anxious ducks, flew in. The duck family headed to a nearby pond.
Wilson calls it "a happy ending."
