CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) - Thirteen ducklings have been rescued from a storm drain in New Hampshire.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1HGnCMR) Sarah Barrette and Monica Landry noticed a mother duck and three ducklings huddled around a storm drain grate Sunday evening in Claremont.

As they approached, the ducks fled the area - only one stayed with the mother when they arrived. Landry says the mother then flew away.

They heard peeping coming from the storm drain, so they called the Claremont Police Department, who responded and then called animal control. Responders removed the storm drain grate, and a police officer used a net to scoop the ducklings.

They have since been taken to a small cage where they’ll be transported to a rescue and rehabilitation facility.
