Fact of the Day: Pelican War

For many years humans had feared competition for fish with pelican birds. So they hunted the birds and destroyed their eggs often. Ironically the fish that pelicans ate were rarely the same that humans would catch.

Poor pelicans. The people should have done research on exactly what the birds eat before they tried to kill them off.

It is terrible the misconceptions people have had that have led them to intentionally kill animals for actually no good reason, some to or near extinction.
