LAFD Firefighters Rescue 10 Ducklings From Storm Drain in Tarzana
Firefighters from the Los Angeles Fire Department made their second animal rescue of the week when they helped 10 ducklings safely get out of a storm drain on Friday.
Crews were called out to the 4000 block of Ellenita Avenue (map) after someone nearby heard multiple ducks chirping from the storm drain, according to Jeremy Oberstein of LAFD.
The firefighters were able to open the well and extricate the 10 ducklings. They were then put in a box and given to a neighbor, Oberstein said in an email.
It was not immediately known how the duckling got into the storm drain.
Earlier in the week, LAFD helped rescue three sheep and two cows after the truck the animals were in overturned on the 210 Freeway in Sylmar on Wednesday.
