Officer Pounds of Evanston PD Saves Pelican
In early October, Animal Warden Officer Pounds of the Evanston Police Department helped save a pelican found unable to fly on a beach in Evanston. The injured pelican was thin and had parasites. Officer Pounds handled the pelican with care and took him to Willowbrook Wildlife Center for care and rehabilitation. After a few weeks, the pelican was healed and released near a flock of pelicans at McKinley Woods.
