Animal Control officer Diane Desrosiers came to the rescue when she encountered a situation in Southgate, Michigan, where 10 orphaned ducklings had strayed onto a roadway, separated from their mother. Diane’s quick thinking led her to place the vulnerable ducklings into a secure pet carrier, ensuring their safety until she could formulate a plan to reunite them with a maternal figure.

During this critical moment, inspiration struck Diane. She decided to transport the ducklings to the nearby South Winds Golf Club, where Stella, a wild duck, had recently given birth to nine ducklings of her own in one of the ponds on the golf course. It was a heartwarming opportunity for these orphaned ducklings to find a new family and receive the care and protection they so desperately needed. Diane’s compassionate actions ensured a brighter future for these feathered friends.

Pro golfer Chris Grandy captured a heartwarming moment on film that left him describing it as “the most precious kind of thing” he had ever witnessed. As the ducklings were gently released into the pond, Stella, the resident wild duck, displayed a remarkable display of maternal instincts. Immediately recognizing that these orphaned ducklings were without a mother and in need of guidance, Stella swam over to them.

With unwavering care and compassion, Stella gathered the young ducklings and led them back to her own family, seamlessly integrating them into her brood. The scene was nothing short of amazing, highlighting the incredible instinctual bond that animals share. Thanks to Stella’s nurturing and selfless act, the 10 ducklings found themselves in the warm embrace of a new mother, allowing them to return to a life filled with love and security.

“They lost their mom and now they got a new mom,” Chris Grandy told FOX 2 News. “It was the most precious kind of thing I’ve ever witnessed. It was such a motherly thing.”
