TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- An injured pelican that crashed into a cruise ship is recovering at a Tampa animal hospital.
According to Royal Caribbean officials, the pelican landed on deck 12 of the port-side of Jewel of the Seas on Wednesday. The ship was returning to Tampa after a trip to Mexico. Ship staff captured the injured bird and brought it to Hillsborough County Animal Services the next day.
BluePearl Veterinary Partners are treating the bird for dehydration and a minor wing injury that will require rehabilitation.
