Dallas Cowboys offensive guard Leonard Davis saved a different type of birdie during the Dallas Cowboys annual Sponsor Appreciation Golf Tournament Wednesday.
Davis, ever an animal-loving gentle giant, came to the rescue of nearly a dozen baby ducks stranded in a sand bunker on the 11th Hole. Davis walked into the bunker and picked up the baby ducks one-by-one and placed them gingerly on the fairway.
Quickly, the little ducks scurried back to their mother -- who previously, and very quickly, had left the sand trap as the 6 foot 6 inch, 360-pound lineman approached. This wasnt the first time Davis has helped stranded animals. Following the same golf tournament back in 2007, Davis first year with the Cowboys, he flew back to Arizona and used his own tractor to help free a horse that was stuck in mud.
The Cowboys' tournament is held each year at the Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine.
Nice to finally have a Cowboys team with some good guys.
A couple of years back he pulled a horse from a mudpit, with a tractor of course.
that’s totally cool
Well I finally found something nice to say about a Dallas Cowboy. Now back to reality, Go Skins scalp those Cowboys.
It would have been quicker if he had used his duck wedge. Just pop them out about 20 yards onto the fairway - more if they are learning to fly.:-)
How do ducks survive? It seems like every year there are some videos of ducks getting stuck in pools, sand traps, potted plants, and (as famously shown above) drainage grates.
It helps every year 2 adults have 10 little ones, hee hee.
Quack you very much.

Where a wayward golf ball smashed into one of their heads and the good news, it kept it out of the sand trap!
That is so wrong
Please tell me that was Photoshopped.
Probably, but it cracked me up.
We need more Af-Ams in metal!
Oh yeah, I forgot about that.
I heard something about them, either they were really good, or really lousy.
Can’t recall, but I know it was one of them.
He does kind of remind me of the lead singer from Killswitch Engage.
Nice story! FWIW, yesterday I had to stop on a side street near my house to allow a pair of Mallard ducks to cross the street in front of my car. Then this morning I had to stop on another highway while a goose was walking across the street in front of me.........
