LONGMONT, Colo. -- Eight ducklings were rescued from a storm drain along Sunset Street in Longmont as fierce storms continued to pummel Colorado on Thursday.
Longmont Animal Control officer Diane Milford struggled to hold onto the baby ducks as she waited for a container to place them in. It took Milford and a Longmont utilities employee about 90 minutes, to remove the animals.
The ducklings were taken to Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
"I like rescuing ducks," Milford told the Longmont Times-Call.
