Talk about lucky ducks!
There is an amazing video making the rounds of a mother duck trying to cross a busy, four-lane highway with her ducklings. I know, I know. It sounds like the start to some lame joke, but it's not.
The footage shows the mama guiding her eight little ones across a dangerous stretch of road in Toronto -- and boy is it a total nail biter. They dodge cars, mini-vans and semis in a determined attempt to get to the other side. Seriously, this is a MUST-SEE.
Honestly, I never knew ducks were so brave. If you look closely, you see the a few being rolled by the wind as the cars whiz by. That soundtrack playing along made it feel more like a Bourne Identity flick than a clip of cute animals trying to avoid becoming road kill. I didn't realize it was possible for something to be so adorable and so scary at the same time?
Take a look at the totally awesome footage:
Is this the most exciting animal video you've seen or what?
