Wisconsin woman dies trying to help ducks cross highway

Posted: Updated:

A mother from Wisconsin dies after being hit by a car while trying to help ducks cross a highway.

Police say the tragedy is a reminder to drivers to stay in their cars, and call police.


"I think people have compassion for baby ducks, baby geese and other things that might be in the roadway, but our advice, if you are on a busy strip of road you should not get out of your vehicle for any reason because it is just so dangerous," a Madison Police spokesperson said.

The Wisconsin DNR says with it being hatching season, there will likely be more birds crossing roads to find new water sources.
