BOISE — A few animal lovers rescued a few ducklings that were trapped in a storm drain Tuesday night on Victory Road near Five Mile Road.

A passerby noticed a mother duck acting strangely on the side of the road and stopped to see what was going on.  She realized a few ducklings were trapped in the drain.

A bit later, some others had gathered to help remove the ducklings.  They used a stick with duct tape on the end as well as a swimming pool skimmer to take three ducklings out.

All of the rescued ducklings were reunited with their mother who was by then swimming in a nearby canal.

“Happy ending. It was adorable. It was just wonderful,” Annette Anderson said.
