An idiot visiting the Florida Keys from Maryland decided it would be cool to leap off a dock onto a pelican. Hunter Hardesty got the pelican's attention by dangling a fish over his head. That's when he jumped into the water and grabbed this poor little guy.
How ironic is that? Moments after a woman yelled at him the pelican bites him. Florida Fish and Wildlife have seen the video and are considering pressing charges for animal cruelty. If you didn't know, pelicans are actually federally protected. If you're trying to help them by getting a hook or fishing line off that's cool but other than that you shouldn't touch pelicans.
