Troopers in New York State are always quick to respond to any call of distress, even when it isn't from a human.

Troopers from Troop A of the New York State Police were recently called to Jamestown to help a group of animals in trouble. What they found was both adorable, but also completely heartbreaking at the same time.

There were a group of baby ducklings stranded by the edge of the road. They were unsure of where to go or what to do because their mother was just hit by a car. Like any infant animal, they heavily rely on their mother to survive until adulthood.

With that being said, the ducklings chance at survival was now significantly low, with no one to protect them from predators. But that is exactly why the State Troopers were there to save the day.

The babies were scooped up and placed into one trooper's car. Now safely off the road and away from danger, the ducklings have been turned over to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) so that they can be rehabilitated.

The New York State Police received lots of praise on social media after making the post. Many were grateful the Troopers stepped in to help.

Even the littlest creature can rely on our troopers coming to their rescue! Thank you.
