    Momma Duck A Shift

    Engine 61 was dispatched to Boy Scout Drive for a report of a momma duck blocking traffic and causing a fuss. They arrived to find a FMPD officer on scene attempting to open a sewer grate because he counted 12 ducklings in an underground sewer pipe. Momma duck was panicking, crossing the roadway several times trying to find her babies. Engine 61 opened the sewer grate and located the babies.
