Police officers might stop traffic for any number of reasons, but it’s not everyday it’s for this cause.

Officer Kevin Putzy with the Eau Claire Police Department in Wisconsin made sure this mother duck and her ducklings could get across the road safely.

Watch the adorable moment:

Since his touching act has gained attention, Putzy has gotten a bit of friendly teasing from his fellow officers but was rewarded with some duck-themed cupcakes — and he wouldn’t even eat the duck decoration.

This is not the first time we’ve seen a cop stop and usher ducklings to safe crossing.
