I once helped a bunch of baby ducks out of a drain just like that!

I liked that the duck video had a happy ending.  I felt bad for incompetent momma duck.

This is more of an Annoying Animal Story.  Also I need help killing these animals.  They are bugs though so not real animals.

I mowed over a yellow jacket nest hole on Sunday and they swarmed me and I got stung 4 times.  I was running through my yard swinging my arms wildly and then I saw two of them attached to my shorts and I was trying to brush them off but they wouldn't budge so I ran into the garage and took my pants off.  So last night I went to Lowe's and bought the foaming spray that has the little red straw (like WD-40 has) so you can stick it way down into the hole and spray the crap out of it (that's what she said) so then last night I waited until almost dark because that's when their activity is lowest and sprayed into the hole for like 10 seconds until it started coming back up.  Then yesterday I go back and look and they are still there!  What gives?

Put gas down there and start it on fire. Or, start the lawnmower over the hole and they’ll come out enraged and get food processed.

You should def light it while still pouring the gas and then swing the flaming gas can all around your yard almost burning your house down. That's what they do in the funny videos i've seen online and I never see any yellow jackets in the videos after, so it seems foolproof.

I think it's time to seek out a two state solution

Start up a riding lawn mower and run it over the hole, toward a cliff with nobody driving it. The wasps will swarm the lawn mower and then when the mower goes off the cliff, all of the yellow jackets will fall off with it.

I do have a giant cliff in my yard.  Just no riding lawn mower, darn.
