Florida Beach Cleanup Team Free Pelican Wrapped in Fishing Line

A trash cleanup crew were picking up litter on a beach in Florida when they tripped over some fishing line. The line led to a pelican in the bushes. 

A group of beach-goers in Florida did a good deed when they found a pelican wrapped in fishing line.

They were already doing a good deed by picking up trash on the beach when they found some fishing line that was wrapped around a bird.

Watch the rescue here.

The folks took a shirt and wrapped the pelican in it while they cut the monofilament line wrapped around its wings.

The pelican then seems to stretch its neck, its not clear how wrapped it was in the fishing line. It then flies away, dipping low over the beautiful Florida ocean.

The jubilation from the rescuers as the pelican flies away is enough to make anyone feel better.

Cheers to good samaritans!
