A mamma Mallard and her brood of fuzzy ducklings blocked traffic Thursday morning trying to cross a St. Louis street. Motorists called the local bird sanctuary to have the birds removed to a safer area.
A 19-year-old man in Ann Arbor, Michigan killed four ducklings by running over them with his Hummer, apparently as an act of vengeance against the employees of a McDonalds who act as caretakers of the duck family.
