Ft.St. John, B.C. –  July 4th was not only  Independence day in the United States,  it  was  a day of independence for  the members of a feathered  family  in  Ft. St. John.

In the morning of July 4th,  a passerby heard some noises, coming from a  storm drain and  called upon RCMP Constable Tristan  Williams to investigate.is a photo of Cst. Williams reaching into an open storm sewer drain to rescue ducklings (baby ducks)

Cst  Williams  removed the grate  from the storm drain,  and  could see  five  trembling  ducklings.

Seems, the  five downy  siblings had  fallen through the drainage grate while  waddling behind their  mother.

Constable Williams  leaned into the  drain, and  retrieved the little ones,  one by one, freeing them from their  drainage  prison.

The quintuplets  were returned to their  home environment,  unharmed,  and  were quickly reunited with their  mother.

Ft. St. John RCMP  say they took this incident seriously  and  have determined there was  no “fowl” play involved.
