Starving Pelican Had Fishing Line Wrapped Around His Beak. It Would’ve Died Any Minute, But Then Men Stepped In


This pelican staved long as it got into trouble. There was a fishing line wrapped around the beak so he could not open it and, consequently, could not eat. We do not know how long it continued so, probably, he was waiting for help sitting so close to humans. Many birds have problems with fishing lines often.
Man approached the bird quietly, caught it and then untangled its beak gently. Pelican was very frightened but there was no other way to make this experience less traumatic. All is well that ends well. The bird flew away to have its first dinner after being hungry for days. Men did a great job. Well done sir!
