Watch for ducks on road

Be more aware of our little animals. We have moved into their territory and we should be more aware of them.

I was sickened this morning seeing this: I was coming down Cheam Ave. toward Young St. At first I thought, isn’t that cute that male duck is trying to use the crosswalk, until I turned on to Young and noticed why he was trying so hard to get out there. The female had been run over.

Now I know it is hard to stop and let a duck cross when you are in a hurry to get to work or school, but come on. It only takes a minute and they are gone out of your way.

Now this duck would have kept trying to get to her so I picked her up and moved her off the road. It was heart wrenching to see the male duck hovered over her trying to get her up. This was something that a moment would have spared her life.

Please be more cautious when driving this time of year.
