Many residents throughout the area have likely noticed the abundance of baby ducks at this time of year. Wherever the young waterfowl are located, a mother is likely close by.

The Antigo Street Department was instrumental in reuniting a mama duck with her younglings early today.

Police reports show a caller reported a number of baby ducks had fallen down a sewer drain at 6:37 a.m. near Maple and South Superior Streets, and the mother duck was frantically running near by.

After an initial investigation by an officer, city officials were quick to the scene and were able to get all the baby ducks from the drain and back to their relieved mother.
