BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Please join me in thanking Deputy Barrett Bright who while on duty this morning observed 11 ducklings on SR-528 that were darting in and out of traffic.

As Deputy Bright pulled over to assist the brood of ducklings, he unfortunately found that the mother had been struck and killed by a passing vehicle.

Without their mother, the ducklings were now wandering throughout the roadway. Deputy Bright was able to safely locate and scoop up all 11 ducklings and get them safely off the roadway.

After securing the ducklings, they were taken to the Florida Wildlife Hospital in Melbourne, Florida where the staff will protect and care for them until they can be returned to the wild.

There is no doubt that without the efforts of Deputy Bright and our great partners at the Florida Wildlife Hospital, the ducklings would not have survived the day!

Please join me in thanking Deputy Bright for going the extra mile in helping to protect these innocent creatures from harm!
