Port Police Report: Resident Calls About Ducks Who Fell in Sewer

A roundup of recent activity from the police blotter focuses on animal complaints and calls, including sewer ducks, runaway dogs and a dog with a bit of a bite.

These ducks must have been a litle out of whack on May 24, when a resident called Port Washington police after witnessing the birds falling into the sewer.

Police notified the Port Washington Water Department, who responded to the call at 9:25 a.m. near 135 East Grand Avenue.

The department advised that the ducks were only a half block from the discharge to the harbor and should have no problem finding their way out. 

What a close call for those quackers.

More from the reports:

  • Lost dog, alarm clock? No, it wasn't alcohol that caused a man to be yelling at 2:44 a.m. May 20 in the 100 block of South Garfield Avenue. Police responded to the area after a complaint about the noise was recieved, and found that the man was looking for his runaway dog. Police took down information about the missing dog, and advised the man to be a bit more quiet.
  • Not so nice: A 63-year-old Grafton man was biking on the bike trail at 4:26 p.m. May 24 in Port, when a dog being walked by its owner bit the biker. The suspects were no longer around when police arrived. The dog is a 60-pound, rust-colored lab or terrier type. The owner is a white female, about 30 to  35 years old, with dark hair.
