Animal control comes to rescue of baby ducks in Md. storm drain

Posted: Updated:
ELKRIDGE, Md. - Howard County Animal Control officers came to the rescue of seven baby ducks that fell and were trapped in a storm drain in Elkridge, Md. on Friday morning.

The ducks were spotted a drain behind a Lowe's Home Improvement store around 10:30 a.m., and Howard County Animal Control quickly came to their rescue.  One of the officers spent two hours jumping into drains and setting traps, and was finally able to rescue all of them.

The last duck was a little more difficult to convince, but as soon as Animal Control Officer Lynn Nesner said, "Come here little buddy," the duck walked right to her. The officer named the baby duck Little Buddy.

The ducks' mother and other ducklings were walking in the area initially, but the mother duck was gone by the time the babies were rescued.

The baby ducks were being taken to Frisky's wildlife Rescue in Howard County.
