Green Line makes way for ducklings

Service on the B Line was interrupted briefly around 1:30 p.m. by a family of ducks - and bystanders trying to convince them trolley tracks are not really all they're quacked up to be. MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo reports on the incident on Comm. Ave. near Blanford:

Approaching the tunnel portal, a trolley operator spotted a small group of people chasing some ducks on the Green Line right-of-way. The trolley operator stopped, and notified a Green Line supervisor. Service was interrupted for twelve minutes while the humans and waterfowl were cleared from the right-of-way.

Jamison Kissh adds workers from BU Facilities also joined in the duck hunt.

Not to mention

a lack of alerts from the T. Oh wait, given how they normally run, I guess a twelve minute delay is nothing to get concerned about.

Meh...they get what's coming to them

If those ducklings are so stupid to waddle in front of streetcar, they get what's coming to them.

On second thought, greenline streetcars move so slowly, nothing probably would happen to them.
