WATCH: Frustrated mother duck attacks firefighter saving her ducklings
LAUDERHILL, Fla. - A Florida firefighter was reminded how thankless his job can be while rescuing a pair of trapped ducklings earlier this week.
Video shared by the Lauderhill Fire Department shows a crew member pulling the ducklings out of a drain. After several minutes of watching the firefighter pull her babies out of the drain, the mom seemingly grows very impatient, taking flight and giving the man a peck to the side of his head.
The firefighter was unharmed, and the reunited family of ducks was last seen waddling off into the sunset.
