    Family of Ducks Visits the White House

    A mother duck and her ducklings decided to visit the White House today, but they needed a little help getting through the gate. (Published Thursday, March 22, 2012)

    A mother duck and her ducklings visited the White House Wednesday, but their trip hit a snag.

    The ducklings couldn't quite get over the concrete barrier and were stuck milling about outside.

    A group of uniformed Secret Service agents saw the separation and went to the ducklings' aid. They lifted each duck through the fence.   
     
    Visitors gave the agents a big round of applause afterward. 

    The ducks were later seen resting in the bushes.
