Pelican Takes A Long, Hard Look At His Choices
August 8, 2016
A pelican in Truckee, California, has become a viral sensation after winding up in the back of a police car.
California Highway Patrol received reports of an injured pelican on I-80 westbound.
When they got there, it appeared the bird wasn't injured, but he was posing a hazard flying between highway lanes and dodging cars.
Luckily, Officer Troy Griesemer, who has falconry experience, was on the scene.
"He looked tired from flying, so I knew I could get a hold of him," Griesemer told the Sacramento Bee. "This isn't the first bird I've caught. I knew what to look for, how he was going to react and how he would try to defend himself."
The pelican took a ride back to the CHP office in the cruiser before being transferred to a wildlife rescue group.
There's some things a pelican do. And some a pelican't.
