Traffic stopped for these ducks in Lansing and it's absolutely adorable



A mama duck and her little ducklings got the royal treatment in downtown Lansing yesterday when police stopped traffic so they could safely cross the road, and honestly, it's the cutest damn thing you will see all day.

Facebook user Jenny Moiles captured the ducks just minding their own business as a police officer held off traffic so they cute little ducklings could make it home (or wherever they were going) safely.

The video has been shared on Facebook more than 1,500 times and counting. Now watch this nursery rhyme video and just imagine "Lansing" instead of "over the hill and far away."
