Then three hours later, the three other ducklings were heard in a storm drain on Vernon Avenue near the grocery store and the pound officers went back to the area. T

Those three were rescued and have also been taken to Swan Lake to hopefully find their mother.

Saanich police said if the ducklings can’t find their mom or the mom doesn’t hear them, they will be taken to WildArc.
