The Cutest Police Chase You May Ever See: Cop Halts Pursuit for…Duck Crossing

A Portland, Oregon, police officer was recently pursuing a traffic violator with lights on and sirens blaring, but put his mission on hold to — wait for it — help a mother duck and her ducklings in the middle of the road.

The dashcam on Officer Mark James’ cruiser captures the chase and the interruption by what one commenter called “duck accomplices”:

“The duck family was escorted safely to water in a ditch and swam away,” the video stated.

Then James was back to work but the violator likely was long gone.
