Family See Officer On The Ground Doing Something Strange, Finally Realize What He's Up To

Sherriff’s deputies are no strangers to leaping in harms’ way to protect and serve members of their community, and that protection can sometimes manifest itself in unexpected ways. According to Fox 17, we can add a mother duck in Holland, MI to the list of those thankful for their service.

A concerned caller phoned into the Ottawa County Sheriff’s department to alert them to a family of ducks that were facing peril. Deputy Tony Boersema was quickly on the case. He responded to the scene, and found a distraught mother duck pacing about like an expectant father. It seems that her baby ducklings had become trapped in a storm drain, and she hadn’t the foggiest idea how to get them out.

Deputy Boersema was able to save the day by reaching down into the drain to rescue the ducks, and reunite them with their very happy and grateful mother. Amanda Brooke Larson-Olsen was a witness to the deputy’s heroic act, and she shared some photos of the scene in a post on Facebook.

“A local sheriff went above and beyond today to save a family. My family and I were pulling out of McDonald’s on Riley st and saw a momma duck circling a storm drain so I made my husband back up and so I could check it out. There were 12 baby ducks,” she wrote.
