    [​IMG]1 day ago TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. (AP) — A swimmer is recovering after a pelican apparently diving for fish slammed into her face off Florida.
    Debbie Shoemaker of Toledo, Ohio, was in the water Thursday near St. Petersburg when the pelican's beak opened a gash in her face. She needed 20 stitches. The bird died.

    So... instead of ashes to ashes and dust to dust when you are not on land and get killed.... It's... seasoning?

    that's sad. then again wildlife doesn't have a chance, in places like FLa. One of these days, they'll be all gone. but that's OK,, 'cause everyone will have their malls, luxury resorts, parking lots, golf courses, exclusive gated communities,, etc...
