A dead pelican was discovered on Sunday the 16th of October with an arrow sticking out of its body.
The pelican was found on the beach near Mowbowra Light Industrial Area, by a thirteen year old boy.
It is likely the bird did not die straight away and could’ve been injured anywhere along the coast. The police have been informed and DPAW officers now have the pelican.
