Man Saves Pelican With Fishing Wire Around Its Beak

Animals can be scary especially the wild ones so it’s not surprising why we feel that way towards them. However, it’s the innate character of humans which tells us that when a situation calls for one, we’ll be there to help whoever or whatever it is. It’s humbling to know that those people still exist today just like this man in the video.

Apparently, he noticed a pelican in need with a fishing wire wrapped around its beak. He could tell that it was struggling so with enough caution, he hurriedly came to its rescue. The man was able to grab the pelican’s legs before it even escapes.

Pelicans suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance, pollution and have been persecuted because they are deemed as competition for fishing. These birds are characterized by their long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey so given the situation, it can hurt people but this didn’t stop the man. With a help from another person, they held it, made sure that its beak was shut close and shortly after, it was released from pain. They then let it fly, now finally free.

That’s really one great deed they did there and I agree to what the woman said in the background–AWESOME!
