Cindy Osiecki, who lives in Great Bend, Pennsylvania is the proud owner of four ducks. While enjoying Fourth of July activities, the ducks snuck out of their yard and set off an adventure around town.
They waddled about a mile up the road, and they ended up in front of a local Pump N Pantry convenience store, where they hung out and accepted food from customers.
When the local police arrived, they tried to herd the ducks into their car, but the ducks did not go quietly.
Pump N Pantry employee Kat described the scene, “They were being chased by one of the police officers. They were chasing them around the car. I thought it was pretty funny, to be honest.”
After an intense chase, the officers finally caught the ducks and put them in their car. They posted a photo of the delinquent animals to Facebook, that quickly went viral.
When Osiecki was contacted, she was shocked when she heard the police had taken her ducks into custody.
“I thought it was funny, I’m like ‘Are you serious?’ There were like ‘Yeah we took them’ because I guess people were trying to take my ducks, and everyone was feeding them, even the cop fed them bread.”
Osiecki is just relieved her ducks are safe, and she is happy the police officers handled the situation so well. She said jokingly that they took the ducks’ webbed footprints.
The ducks are now back at home, safe and sound, happily swimming in their backyard creek.
