BOSTON (AP) - Pack is back.
Boston police say a bronze duckling named Pack has been
recovered after being stolen from the beloved "Make Way For
Ducklings" sculpture in the city's Public Garden.
A park ranger had discovered Pack's theft early Monday.
Police say the sculpture was found by residents at about 2:40
a.m. Tuesday. The duckling was next to a tree on a street corner
not far from the garden.
Pack is the next to last of the eight ducklings lined up behind
Mrs. Mallard in the sculpture inspired by Robert McCloskey's
children's book "Make Way for Ducklings," in which a family of
ducks walks across a highway to get to the garden.
He's not the first to be stolen. Quack, Mack and Jack have gone
missing over the years. All were recovered or replaced.
