9 ducklings escape from county jail in Oregon


OREGON CITY, Ore. (KATU) - There are nine escaped convicts in Clackamas County but they don't exactly fit the bill of a typical criminal.

Four weeks ago, a mama duck gave birth to nine babies inside the Clackamas County Jail perimeter and Wednesday the feathered felons made their escape.

Jail staff took the ducklings under their wing and helped escort them out of a secure portion of the jail and into a nearby pond.

The sheriff's office says the mama and her ducklings are doing great and can only be classified as "escape artists."
