(ANIMAL VIDEO/DUCKS) For those of you needing any more proof of the rich emotional life of animals, watch this amazing video of a frantic mother duck quacking at rescuers as they saved her entire brood from a storm drain. – Global Animal

In a rare rescue operation in Garden Grove on Wednesday, animal control officers came to the aid of about a dozen ducklings stuck in a storm drain. The drama unfolded at Lampson Avenue and West Street.

Rescuers arrived to find the mother duck frantically pacing around the drain opening. Officers were able to scoop the 14 ducklings into a box, which was lowered through a manhole.

The mother duck followed animal control officers to a pond where she was reunited with her babies.”
