What a piece of low life!

Law Enforcement Case of the Week
While conducting surveillance, Officers Stephen Wicker and Travis Basford witnessed a charter boat captain hold a pelicanís beak shut and wrap fishing line around it before letting the animal go. Moments later, they saw him do the exact same thing with another pelican, but this time, he tied a knot in the line before releasing the bird

Perhaps we should tie fishing line around his feet and release him into the ocean?

According to the article he did this on a charter fishing trip in front of his customers. I wonder if any of them would have reported him if the officers had not witnessed this low life doing such a thing. I know I would have confronted him if I'd seen it, as well as reported him to the authorities ( with pictures).

As well as giving him plenty of publicity.

Horrifying. I hope he loses his livelihood.

Mouth breathing redneck. It's a shame it's not a felony.

It should be a felony. Animal abusers need to be dealt with harshly. I just read that two teens shot a dog and left it tied to train tracks in the Tampa area. The dog survived, thankfully. I hope those two miscreants get locked up for a long time.

At least some good news for some pelicans that had their pouches slit open
