The downtown canal in Indianapolis just a little safer for the baby ducks and geese. City officials have installed four small wooden ramps to help the ducklings and goslings get out of the water.
They decided to have the ramps put in after learning that the young ducks and geese were dying because they were too tiny to climb or jump over the canal’s cement edges. And PETA was quick to issue a statement thanking the city for helping the waterfowl.
“PETA thanks the city of Indianapolis for doing the right thing in striving to coexist with local wildlife,” they said. “These ramps are a responsible and practical way for the city to make a world of difference for each duckling who will be able to escape drowning in the canal.”
