NEW FIELDS, NH (WMUR/CNN) - Hallie Bibeau said she was driving last Friday afternoon when she had to slam on her brakes and pull over to avoid hitting some stranded ducklings.

"I could hear them peeping, and I looked over the right hand side of the road, and I saw that their mom had been hit and was dead on the side, so I couldn't just continue on," Bibeau said.

A new mother herself, she called 911.

"And while I was sitting there, I saw a few of them try to go to the westbound lane and got run over, and it was terrible to see," she said.

Maternal instinct kicking in, Bibeau got out of her car and captured the two survivors.

Seeing the commotion, an ambulance on its way to another incident stopped.

"She explained to them that she wasn't in distress," said Lt. Nicole Armaganian with the New Hampshire State Police. "She saw a mother duckling get hit by a vehicle, and it had its baby ducklings in tow."

Not far behind was a state trooper. He asked for Bibeau's identification and issued her $100 ticket for stopping in the median, a prohibited area.

"We keep our medians free for vehicles who are truly having an emergency, such as the vehicle that was up ahead," Armaganian said. "Stopping for an injured duck or ducklings is not what we would consider to be an emergency."

Bibeau said she will contest the ticket, but even if she has to pay, she'd do it all over again.

"I felt bad for the situation, bad for the mom that had gotten hit. I just wanted to do whatever I could for her ducklings, and if I could save two of them, I could save two of them,” she said.
