This is how a pelican wrapped in fishing line is rescued by a fisherman that gives back to the outdoors that he loves.
With patience and a tantalizing fish dangling from his hand, a man saves the life of a bird that probably would have died.
Sportsmen of the world care. Here’s how one man made a simple rescue and showed the compassion of outdoorsmen everywhere.
Pelicans are known to have attacked and eaten fish that are hooked and being played by fisherman. Many times the fisherman will have the issue of reeling in their catch with an attached sea bird.
In most cases such a confrontation can be avoided by paying close attention to what’s around you. As responsible sportsmen know, cleaning up after ourselves is one of the keys to leaving our environment better than we found it and making sure that things like this don’t happen.
Make sure to pick up all used fishing gear as many species can get tangled in it; such as a pelican wrapped in fishing line. Let’s prove to the world that no one cares for the earth more than outdoorsmen.
