Ducks show up at Von’s Pavilion parking lot in Simi Valley

The drought has really hit California hard.  Now ducks are losing their good sense.  This mother duck and her offspring took a wrong turn and end up in the Von’s Pavilion Shopping Center in Simi Valley.

From the Ventura County Animal Services Facebook:

“California MUST be in a drought because this mama duck and 7 babies couldn’t find their way back to the pond! They were discovered in the parking lot of the Pavilion Shopping Center in Simi Valley! Officer Kelli Hipple took the call. She soon pulled into the lot and asked 3 Pavilion staff members, as well as 4 passerbys, to stand around the planter so the babies couldn’t escape. Officer Hipple needed to pick up the mother so they could be reunited. The net was removed safely and everyone was perfectly fine!

“Mama and babies were released near a creek at Los Angeles Avenue and 1st Street. Family is reported doing well.”

It’s always nice to run across a happy ending.
