These babies were dropped off in a box -- no mama to teach them what to do, to help shush them into the pond in case of danger.
They were left at a park....but these sweeties had no clue what to do.
They were near cars, a street...and no other resident duck "took them under their wing".
Other park go-ers were expressing concerns, too.
They were pretty much on their own for several days. We had gone out of town.
So - on Monday evening we had a mini duck rodeo and rounded them up, took them home, fed them, and the next morning took them to the duck wildlife rescue liaison.
I re-homed this little cutie about 2 weeks ago...it was in the middle of a very busy road.
Cars were straddling it.
Bless his heart.
I had to find a safe place to stop the car.
I ran back down the road, jumped up and down and pointed to the turtle....cars moved to another lane.
I snatched my buddy off the street and proceeded to find a safe place for him to live.
We love critters!
