This is the moment a mother duck and her seven fluffy ducklings waddle across the road after a kind-hearted cop stopped traffic to let them pass.
In the adorable footage, filmed at Ciudad Jardin in the city of Cali in the western Colombian department of Valle del Cauca, the police officer is seen keeping watch as the ducks cross the street.
The clip shows the mother duck leading her fluffy younglings in a line, as motorists wait patiently for them to finish crossing.
When the waterfowls are all safely on the grass verge, the unidentifed cop signals for the traffic to once again start moving.
The footage was filmed by an onlooker and shared by the city’s Secretary of Mobility with the message: “We are part of real change when we respect the animals we share the city with. Thanks for providing us with the video.”
Netizen ‘WilsonRico15’ commented: “We should respect and look after nature. Thanks for taking care of the vulnerable little animals we share our city with.”
Fellow online viewer ‘Rolallisubbo’ said: “Life is beautiful when the animal kingdom is looked after. Cali is an example for the world!”
