ARL Helps Boston Animal Control Rescue Duck Family From Busy Boston Street

Ducks traded to Back Bay Fens

Last week, the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) Field services Assisted department Boston Animal Care and Control in rescuing a family of ducks from a patio along a busy Boston street and moving them to a safer location.

The mother duck and her seven ducklings were on a patio along the 800 block of Boylston Street in Boston, creating a dangerous situation, especially for the ducklings.

Boston Animal Control contacted the ARL for assistance and once there, ARL Field Service officers were able to circle and safely trap the ducklings with netting before placing them in a transport container.

Once the ducklings and their mother were ready to be transported, Boston Animal Control took the duck family to a stream along the Back Bay Fens, where the family quickly acclimated to their new surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle of Boston’s busy streets.
