Put Down the Pelican and Put Your Hands In the Air!

  • 1 min read
Bozo criminal for today comes from Rexburg, Idaho, where the cops were called to a disturbance at a campground. Upon arrival, they found the cause of the problem, three intoxicated males running around the facility, one of them carrying a pelican. A pelican? In Idaho? Yep. Apparently pelicans are classified as migratory birds and protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. They weren’t willing to give up the bird quietly, however, as two of the men began yelling at the officers and flipping them the bird. The hand symbol, not the pelican! Eventually order was restored, the men were arrested and charged with harassing wildlife and the bird was taken into protective custody. No word on what they were planning on doing with the creature.
