Freedom Friday! Hooked Pelican

Here is the release of a juvenile brown pelican that was struggling to fly in Lemon Bay in Englewood.  Turns out he had two fishing hooks in it’s wings and was so tangled in fishing line that he couldn’t spread his wings enough to achieve lift off.  Our rehabbbers were able to safely remove the hooks and the line, gave him a free meal and sent him back the next day.

If you hook a bird, don’t cut the line!  Call the Wildlife Center of Venice and we will come help out.  Have a great weekend!!
