Truly sickening that anyone could do such a thing to animals. Worst yet, how is this ONLY a misdemeanor?

FWC: Fishing guide tied pelicans

On March 1 at about 9:30 a.m., undercover officers were patrolling areas of Warren Bayou, also called Steam Plant Canal, when two pelicans flew into the fishers’ lines at the same time. Lemieux then allegedly took one pelican to the back of the boat, wrapped fishing line around its beak and pulled the line until it broke. He then let the pelican go before returning to his customers for the other pelican, FWC officers reported.

We “looked at each other, not believing what we had just seen,” the officer wrote. “Lemieux then took the other pelican to the same spot in his vessel, grabbed the bill the same way, wrapped it up 3-4 times again, stretched the line out, cut the line by biting it, then tied a knot around the bill of that pelican. That pelican also flew away.”

FWC then got video and pictures of the pelicans flying around with fishing line wrapped around their beaks and waited at the mouth of the canal to approach Lemieux, they said.

We should knock him out and stitch his lips shut as punishment.
