Pelican Rescued From California Interstate

The California Highway Patrol made an unusual rescue from an interstate last week. CHPs got a call about an injured pelican on the road in Truckee. When they arrived, they determined that the bird wasn’t actually hurt, but he was posing a hazard by flying between lanes and dodging cars.

He gave the bird a ride back to the station in his cruiser, where he stayed until he could be transferred to a wildlife rescue. — Read it at the Huffington Post
