Firefighters in Atlanta don't just put out burning buildings or pull cats out of trees.
They also save ducklings!!
Apparently, a mother duck was going crazy after her ducklings fell down a storm drain, and a PETA member called the fire department.
The firemen sprung into action, arriving at the scene, removing the grate, climbing down and rescuing all 8 baby ducks!
The duckies where then released safely away from the drain and the mama duck swooped in to usher them to safety.
"Thanks to their dedicated and swift action, these firefighters took what could have ended in tragedy and turned it into the happiest possible Mother's Day for a loving mother duck and her family. Alpharetta is very fortunate to have first responders who are ready to protect and serve all residents— including the ones with wings."
Aww! That's so cute! It was a mothers day rescue for that mama duck!
So glad that those firemen gave up their precious time to help some of mama nature's cutest critters!
PETA was so happy with their fast response time, (the whole ordeal was over in 30 minutes) they awarded the firefighters their Compassionate Fire Department Award! Congrats!!
