My friend, Cameron Siggs, snapped this photo yesterday of an FMPD officer stopping traffic on 41 to allow mama duck and a dozen or so of her ducklings to safely cross the street. Kudos are in order to the patient motorists who waited for the duck family to cross and to do so safely.
I love it, it’s a scene right of ‘Make Way for Ducklings’, the Caldecott-winning children’s book that recently celebrated its 75th anniversary.
We take for granted all the different things law enforcement are called upon to do. Just yesterday, CCSO escorted an aggregation of manatees, and CCPD recently shared this photo of Officer Keith Edinger helping a trapper remove a nuisance gator. Thank you all for your protection.
