Call it a fare to remember. The payment? Ten grateful bills.
Cab driver Urga Adunga was making the rounds through Calgary, Canada, in his yellow taxi last week when he spotted a young family who really looked like they could use a free ride. There, in the road near a busy intersection, was a mother duck with nine little ducklings in tow. Adunga decided to offer them a lift.
"I jumped out of my cab and I motioned for the oncoming traffic to pull over so I could get the animals to safety," Adunga told Global News. "Several drivers got out of their cars and signalled everyone to stop. Other drivers used baby carriers to hold the ducklings and put them gently into my cab with their mama."
