Watch: Saved from highway harm, ducklings waddle into Swan Lake

Saanich Pound rescue, release ducklings in cute video

Freedom called on Thursday as a Saanich Pound officer rescued and relocated a paddling of ducklings into Swan Lake.

The ducklings were gathered at a nearby highway and brought to safety at Swan Lake, where they’ll join a healthy population of ducks. The nature sanctuary is a safe haven for waterfowl and birds alike, and spring is a great time to see ducklings scoot along the surface of the lake.
