Wis. woman braves traffic, saves 14 ducklings

Wis. woman braves traffic, saves 14 ducklings 24 Apr 2010 A mother duck didn't survive her walk across a busy Wisconsin roadway, but a motorist made sure the 14 ducklings stayed safe — even one that wiggled under her dashboard. Angela Speed of the Wisconsin Humane Society says the good Samaritan was driving in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb, on Friday when she saw the newly hatched mallards trying to cross a busy road. The woman told Speed that a vehicle in front of her appeared to intentionally hit the mother duck, leaving her ducklings confused in the middle of the road. [One can only hope that the sociopath that intentionally hit the mother duckling meets a similar -- or, better yet -- *exact* fate.]
