A duck named Quackers took a liking to Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy Alexis Whiteley as she was providing traffic control at the scene of an injury accident near Auburn.

Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy Alexis Whiteley was providing traffic control at the scene of a injury accident on Dry Creek Road in the Auburn area Thursday night when she found herself with an unexpected companion.

A duck, who deputies later learned is named Quackers, took a liking to Whiteley and stayed with her during the more than 30 minutes she was at the scene, according to Sheriff’s Department Facebook post.

A neighbor eventually came along and said he would take Quackers back to his nearby home. The Sheriff’s Department said a deputy took the video of Whiteley and Quackers after the accident scene was cleared.
