Without the help of these 4 big-hearted inhabitants, the duck and her babies might not have survived on the streets of Nantes. And rightly so, the little lost family went straight to the city center. Light on this dangerous but successful rescue.
On Saturday, April 23, Stéphane, while walking through the streets of Nantes, made an unusual encounter. Ahead of him, a duck with her nine chicks ambled in the middle of a public road. A danger to this lost family as well as to motorists, especially as it gets crowded in the middle of the afternoon.
“With all the cars going by they get run over, it’s going to be a bloodbath! I couldn’t leave them there.”
Stéphane, interviewed by West France
In order to avoid a tragedy, the Nantes native came up with the idea of guiding the small fowl-like company to the Jardin des Plantes, a safe place. How ? By talking to the duck and somehow telling him the way. Stéphane was soon joined by three other passers-by.
Thanks to the mobilization of these four passers-by, the duck and her young are now out of danger. They joined the botanical garden and can roam freely in the 7 hectares of greenery.
