St. Petersburg Drivers Stop for Two Ducks on a Date

Residents of St. Petersburg, Russia's "culture capital," proved their sophistication goes beyond humans and extends to other residents of the city, too. Right in the center of a busy road, drivers came to a stop and patiently waited as two ducks (very conscientiously and calmly) waddled their way across a busy street.

Here's a look at their afternoon adventure.
