Police sea patrol officers rescued a pelican struggling in the waters off the coast of Tel Aviv on Wednesday. The pelican, who was suffering from a gunshot wound and a broken wing, initially "resisted arrest" police said, but was eventually corralled into the police boat and evacuated to a veterinary hospital. Police said they so far had no suspects in the shooting of the pelican, but wished him a speedy recovery. A video of the rescue was uploaded by Tel Aviv Police to their Web site and You Tube channel.
