I don’t think I’d be fast enough to snatch a pelican if you paid me a million dollars, but this man? He not only grabbed one with his bare hands, but he saved its life!
The ponytailed gentleman was just hanging around on a dock, as people in Florida do, when he spotted a pelican acting strange. Upon closer inspection, he realized that fishing wire was wrapped around the bird’s beak, leaving it unable to eat or drink. In an incredible act of bravery and kindness, he set about freeing the poor bird that otherwise would have died a slow and painful death.
The pelican is lucky this guy showed up when he did. He’s stealthy, quick, and has incredible compassion — everything you need for a successful pelican rescue!
