This is the cutest thing you will see all day.

I don’t know about you, but I have a soft spot for animals (the nice kind, not the scary kind). So, I had to share this video with you.

Apparently, the police officer in the below video has a soft spot for animals as well. Because he took the time to block the street and go above and beyond to make sure a mother duck and her ducklings were able to safely cross the street somewhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

It gives the police motto “to protect and to serve” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

There I was thinking the motto only applied to human citizens. Clearly, I was wrong. Apparently, the men and women of law enforcement are also tasked with ensuring the welfare of the critters inside our city limits.

In fact, I would imagine it’s probably much less of a hassle dealing with the animal population. I know I for one would much rather escort a mother duck and her ducklings across the street than have to deal with the late-night craziness that goes on in the big city.

So, if the officer who was kind enough to escort the ducks across the street just so happens to be reading this, please reach out to me. I would love to buy you a beer the next time I make the trek down to DFW.
