They fight crime, the find missing kids and sometimes they save ducklings.

The Truro Police Service in Nova Scotia posted a pair of videos of the daring duck rescue, including one of Constable Wendy Cormier, who jumped into a storm drain to pluck five young ducks up to street level.

Call it Truro’s Mother’s Day miracle.

“This morning Cst Cormier rescued 5 little ducks from a storm drain on Robie St.,” police posted on Facebook Sunday. “The ducks were reunited with their mother to celebrate Mother’s Day!

The ducklings quickly made their way to their mother. Truro Police Department/Facebook

 

It was a dirty job, but Const. Cormier just the person to hop into action.

Police also thanked the town’s public works department for their assistance, too.

The ducklings were placed in a box and happily waddled over to their anxious mother.

A truly happy ending to this duck tale.
