2 birds rescued after being found entangled in fishing line

FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. — A juvenile Brown Pelican and Snowy Egret were rescued after being found entangled in a fishing line at Fort Myers Beach.

According to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), on September 7 both birds were found in rough condition.The fishing line was wrapped several times around the wing and neck of the Snowy Egret. Due to concerns of septic shock, severe strangulation, and wing injuries, the Snowy Egret was euthanized.

The Brown Pelican is being cared for with medicine after the hooks were removed. The bird will continue to be treated and monitored as it begins the rehabilitation process, CROW said.
