Concerned citizens alerted police when they saw the little family wandering around in the middle of a busy street.


The two officers, Joey Taylor and Ryan Geib, quickly came on their bikes and didn't hesitate to stop the moving traffic to make sure the family of ducks safely made it across to the nearby river.



Joey Taylor explained to local press:


We came because the citizens were concerned. They saw them downtown, didn’t want anybody to get hurt and didn’t want any of the ducks to get hurt.

The officers escorted the ducks all the way to the river at the edge of the town, and made sure every one of the ducklings got back into the water safe and sound.

Our officers are always happy to assist, and not just our people!
