A Dozen Baby Ducklings Left Orphaned

A Dozen Baby Ducklings Left Orphaned --Driver Runs Down Mom on Highway 100 09 Apr 2010 (Milwaukee) She was simply trying to cross the road with her baby ducklings in tow, but a driver ran her down and struck the Mallard mom earlier today on Highway 100, killing her. A few stunned passersby stopped to scoop up the babies and one Good Samaritan brought them to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. "The woman who brought the ducklings in was shocked to watch a driver seemingly run down the poor mother on purpose," said Angela Speed, director of community relations and development at WHS.
