She grabs police officer by pant leg to lead him to her brood trapped under grate Nicholas Read Vancouver Sun
Ray Peterson, Special to the Sun / Mother duck shows police officer where her ducklings fell through a grate into a sewer underneath the Granville Street Bridge.
Don't mention "bird brains" to Ray Petersen, because after what happened this week, he won't hear a word of it.
Petersen, a community police officer for Granville Downtown South, was walking in the 1500-block Granville Street (directly under the Granville Bridge) Wednesday morning when a duck came up and grabbed him by the pant leg. Then it started waddling around him and quacking.
"I thought it was a bit goofy, so I shoved it away," Petersen said in an interview.
But the duck, a female (he thinks it was a mallard), wasn't about to give up that easily. Making sure she still had Petersen's eye, she waddled up the road about 20 metres and lay on a storm sewer grate.
I made of myself what I did not know how, And what I could have made of myself I failed to do. The domino costume that I wore was all wrong And I was immediately recognized as someone I was not and I did not deny it, and was lost. When I tried to take off the mask, It was stuck to my face. When I took it off and looked myself in the mirror, I had already grown old. I was drunk, and I no longer knew how to put on the costume that I had not taken off. I threw the mask away and slept in the dressing room Like a dog tolerated by the management Because it is harmless. And I am going to write this story to prove that I am sublime. .
