Pack is back: Boston park ranger finds missing bronze duckling

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.

BOSTON — 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.

WBZ-AM reports that the sculpture was found early Tuesday morning on a street corner not far from the garden. Police confirmed the duckling had been found, but had no additional details.

A park ranger discovered Pack’s theft early Monday.

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.
