A crew of five Rangers went out in kayaks and on land surrounding the pond to corral the ducks. Upon their rescue, they were brought ashore and safely transported to the Wild Bird Fund to assess their health, and eventually find a new home for the pair of ducks.

Please ~ don’t release your unwanted pets into our City parks. Those wishing to re-home a pet should seek community resources for help. Domestic pets won’t make it out there!
