FRANKLIN — Twenty-eight mallard ducks were released into the wild at the Wehr Nature Center, Tuesday morning.

The ducks have been in rehabilitation at the Wisconsin Humane Society's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center since they were hatchlings.

The unrelated ducks were all admitted as orphans for a multitude of reasons, ranging from one mother being struck by a vehicle, to others rescued after falling down into a sewer.

These ducks are now fully recovered and old enough to be returned to the wild.
