White House Security Reunites Ducklings With Mother

The White House grounds may be highly restricted, but as the world learned recently, ducks get a free pass. On Wednesday, White House security guards helped eight ducklings reunite with a mother duck who had squeezed through a security fence and made it onto the White House lawn.

Video taken from outside the White House shows the mother duck nimbly hopping a ledge and waddling onto the grounds. Her young ducklings, however, were left stranded outside.

At this point, White House security sprang into action and helped the ducklings cross over with the aid of a small ramp. Meanwhile, assembled onlookers applauded after the family had been reunited.

Yes, it’s heartwarming, but a word of caution — unless you’re a cute, fuzzy duck, don’t expect similar treatment from the Secret Service.
