The group saved the duck dynasty, which was apparently illegally released into the pond, more than two weeks ago.

The domesticated ducks could not to make it to the shoreline on their own, requiring help from the parks department’s Urban Park Rangers, together with animal rescue group, They All Want to Live.

Flapping and flailing and stomping and quacking in the shallow water, the duck rescuers surrounded the ducks with their canoes, and scooped them to safety.
