ANN ARBOR – On Saturday morning, Ann Arbor police and firefighters answered a different type of call: trapped ducklings.
A concerned resident alerted first responders that the ducklings were stuck in a storm drain. Ann Arbor police officer Eric Chinn, with support from the Ann Arbor Fire Department, was able to extract a dozen ducklings and reunite them with their mother.
“After getting to see the inside of a police car, the family was left in the safety of one of our lovely parks,” AAPS wrote in a Facebook post, which includes an adorable video of the ducklings being released in the comments.
It’s not the first time the departments have made a heroic rescue of the small critters. You can watch a rescue from May 2020 here.
