SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Save Our Seabirds posted photos to social media after they released a pelican back into the wild.
The Sarasota-based animal rehabilitation and rescue said the bird had improved enough under their care.
“This beautiful white pelican came to us lethargic and skinny. He thrived on supportive care and anti-parasite treatment, and he was soon released back to the wild,” reads a Facebook. “It is always a pleasure to treat these special winter visitors!”
