Indy cars make way for ducklings.

It wasn’t quite “rogue squirrel getting adopted as unofficial World Series mascot,” but the past few days have seen some strong work in the field of animals landing hilariously in the middle of human competitions.

The following evening, a husky ran wild during an NCAA Tournament game between Cal-State Fullerton and Arizona State.
