TAHOE CITY (CBS13) – A Placer County sheriff’s deputy worked tirelessly to save a group of ducklings she found trying to cross a busy roadway.

In a video posted to the department’s Facebook page Thursday morning, the deputy can be seen using her patrol vehicle to block traffic – allowing all six ducklings to safely cross and huddle under a car on the side of the highway.

When animal services arrived, the ducklings ran along the gutter – straight into and down a sewer drain, one by one.

But all were later rescued – frightened, but healthy – and taken to a wildlife rescue.
