Cop Dumps 10 Orphaned Ducklings Into A Pond, And They Immediately Get A New Mom

| Published on February 13, 2024

Animal Control officer Diane Desrosiers intervened to assist 10 ducklings in Southgate, Michigan, who had lost their mother and were stranded on a street. Placing them in a pet carrier for their safety, she pondered on the best course of action. In a stroke of inspiration, Diane decided to transport them to the South Winds Golf Club nearby. The golf course was home to Stella, a wild duck who had recently given birth to nine ducklings in one of its ponds. This ingenious plan aimed to reunite the orphaned ducklings with a new mother in a natural habitat, ensuring their safety and well-being.

Pro golfer Chris Grandy filmed the moment the ducklings were dumped into the pond, and what happened next he described as “the most precious kind of thing I’ve ever witnessed.”

As soon as the ducklings hit the water, Stella swam over to them right away as if she realized they were without a mom and needed help. She gathered them up and led them back with her family and adopted them on the spot.
