We saw a duck frantically running around and we got out and heard the little chirps down in the sewer! My girls were so proud of us! Some of the shoppers thought we were committing a crime and next thing we knew the Winnebago Sheriffs were watching us as we climbed out of the sewer. We explained and showed them the ducks we put in a box that we rescued. The Sheriffs helped us locate the Mama duck and reunite the little adorable duck family!”
