Mama and 13 ducklings rescued from Ogden by Berwyn bar

BERWYN, Ill. (WLS) -- A mama duck and her 13 babies were rescued Thursday morning by a west suburban bar owner after they were seen trying to cross Ogden Ave.

Cigars and Stripes in the 6700-block of W. Ogden in Berwyn posted a Facebook Live video detailing the ducks' rescue.

Owner Ronnie Lottz said the mother and ducklings were fenced safely in the beer garden after he noticed them trying to cross traffic on Ogden.

He said he stopped traffic and helped them into the beer garden.

Animal Care and Control soon arrived and said they actually rescued the same mother and ducklings a week ago from a sewer drain.

Video shows the ducks were released into the Des Plaines River.
