Normal-- 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 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.
