Make Way For Ducklings, And That's An Order!

When being a cop is all it's quacked up to be.


Police in St. Andrews, Scotland, had the delightful task of escorting a mother duck and her nine ducklings across a road last Wednesday, carefully guiding the young family to safety.

Video of the incident shows officers didn't hesitate to ruffle a few motorists' feathers, stopping traffic so the ducklings could process across a bridge and down to the water below.

"It was a dramatic moment. It was interesting and a bit surreal," Yoriko Hirose, the videographer who captured the scene, told Metro. "The police did a good job. They managed to get the ducks off the road quite quickly."
