A Highway 1 ‘Five Duckling Rescue’ Call

File # 2017-14006
On Saturday, June 10, 2017 at approximately 10:00 am, the North Vancouver RCMP responded to a call about five ducklings crossing Highway 1 with an ever increasing risk of meeting with tragedy. Police attended the roadside at a location just east of the Lonsdale exit onto Highway 1.
A passing motorist had corralled the five ducklings that appeared in distress without their mother being in sight. Unfortunately, all efforts to locate the mother duck were futile. The five little ducklings were then scooped up and placed into the rear of the police vehicle for safety.
The ducklings were taken to the detachment where they were made comfortable before receiving aid from the Wildlife Rescue Association in Burnaby. At the center, the ducks were examined and found to be in good health. They were determined to be Mallard ducks and will be taken care of at the center.
All in a day’s job for Cst. Hirtle of the North Vancouver RCMP.
