California Living Musuem staff rescued an injured American White Pelican from Hart Park on Friday. It had a large lure stuck in its bill, along with other wounds.
After a three-hour rescue effort, the pelican was taken to CALM for treatment.
Californian photographer Casey Christie, who had photographed the injured pelican Thursday, visited CALM Saturday to check on its progress. While the road to recovery is expected to take weeks, the pelican was able to rest in a wading pool.
