Pelicans found with slashed pouches

HUNTINGTON BEACH, California (AP) -- Four pelicans have been found in recent weeks with their pouches slashed, wildlife officials said.

A veterinarian Thursday stitched up an endangered brown pelican found in Huntington Beach on Sunday, said Sharon Weeks, development director of the Wetlands & Wildlife Care Center.

The bird also had a fish hook and fishing line in its wing.

Pelicans use their pouches to catch fish and the injured birds could die of starvation and dehydration if not treated.

Of the three other injured birds, one has died and two have been treated by the Pacific Wildlife Project in Laguna Nig

id like to meet the people responceible for this.
