Rogers quickly caught the mother duck and five of the ducklings, and put them in a cardboard box in the back of his patrol car. But one duckling decided to do things differently.
"One of the ducklings they were trying to catch actually ran across all four lanes of I5," Travis Shearer, a public information officer for the Washington State Patrol, told The Dodo. "But miraculously, the little duckling was not hit."
Rogers risked his own life by chasing after the runaway duckling. When he finally caught him, he scooped him up and put him in a box with the others. Then he drove the duck family to a pond that was far away from the highway.
