BOULDER, COLO. - Serve and protect doesn’t just apply to people.
Boulder Police tweeted Friday that the department helped a mother duck rescue her babies that had become trapped inside a grate they had fallen into.
Police cleared the debris and built a ramp to help set the ducklings free.
The ducklings were chirping as they followed their mother back to safer waters.
