Greasy ducks take a bath to restore their floatability

Ducklings were found covered in grease. They were found at the back of a restaurant, rescued from a grease pan.

Allie Booth, Wildlife Supervisor of the SPCA of Erie County, talked about what the ducklings need to get back in the lake.

“It’s a huge detriment to them because what these birds, especially ducklings need, is to be able to float on the water and if they have anything impeding their feather condition it makes it very difficult for them to stay afloat and they’ll get soaked with water and could drown.”

The animal rescue team will keep the birds for a while.

They need to make sure the ducklings are ready for the wild.
