50 ducks temporarily made a CVS in Saratoga Spring, N.Y., their home Thursday ABC News reported Monday.

"There was no serious damage to the store, except for a small amount of mud that the ducks tracked in on their webbed feet," the YouTube user said when uploading the video.

The ducks were let in by the stores automatic sliding doors therefore puzzling employees about to get rid of the group.

One employee then gave the ducks a bag of popcorn to coax them to leave after thinking about what could be done so the species would vacate the premises Inquisitir reported.

It is not known however, exactly how the ducks were able to slip past the store's sliding door, but scenarios include the animals went in behind a customer, or the door's sensor recognized the ducks were near the store's entrance, and therefore opened it for them.

The news is the latest development in animals entering public businesses. A bear for instance went into a bar in Colorado in July, observed what was going on, and left after becoming disinterested.

A woman brought a horse into a McDonald's into the United Kingdom, also in July, after she was told she could not be served the Telegraph reported.

"The health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders or customers on horseback through the drive-thru," McDonald's said in a statement.

The woman then brought the animal into the store after she was still in dire need of having a big mac burger.

"The sight and smell of this caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members," a police report said according to the inquisitir.  "The staff refused to serve the women due to company policy. The women then took the horse into the restaurant who ended up doing his business on the floor."
