Watch: Men wrangle, save pelican with beak wired shut

(WVUE) - A pelican tangled in fishing wire sat on the pier. His beak was wired shut, tangled in fishing line.

That's when a Good Samaritan decided to step up and free the helpless creature.

The man grabbed the pelican by the feet and held the bird down tight. A second man pried the fishing line from the bird's beak.

After the bird was freed, it flew away seemingly unharmed. Mobile users can view the video here: http://bit.ly/1Muwzvi
