Rescuing Hooked Brown Pelicans

Every year scores of brown pelicans are accidentally hooked by fishermen who fail to remove the hook and line from the injured bird. When the bird flies away, the line is frequently entangled in trees and bushes, ensnaring the bird in a trap from which it can't escape. It eventually dies of starvation. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center offers these guidelines to rescue hooked pelicans.
