Update on the windblown ducklings

Came across this article on the ducklings that were blown across the tarmac... http://www.thestar.com/news/article/903519--video-of-windblown-ducklings-at-woodbine-racetrack-goes-viral?bn=1 - "Video of windblown ducklings at Woodbine Racetrack goes viral."


No ducks were harmed in making the video, Matthew Stevens, the Woodbine Entertainment Group cameraman who captured the moment, assured the Star.

“We were under a wind delay at Woodbine. It’s a little dangerous for the horses to race in wind like that,” Stevens said Wednesday.

Braver than thoroughbreds, the duck family had tried twice before to get from the racetrack paddock to the walking ring. They picked themselves up after getting blown across the concrete, the ducklings got back into formation behind their mother, and they all ducked into a sheltered spot.

“We made sure none of the little ducklings would fall into the storm drain,” Stevens said. “They were fine.”


So, nice to know they all made it out okay!
