Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu) [India], Oct. 22 ( ANI ): A Great White Pelican, which was rescued from Valankulam Lake by an environmentalist, is being treated in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore.

Environmentalist Syed rescued the injured Pelican on Sunday and handed it over to the forest department for treatment.

After receiving information from the locals, Syed reached the spot. He first took the bird to the zoo authorities, who refused to take it. The environmentalist then handed it over to the forest department.

Syed alleged that no doctor was available at the forest department and the bird's treatment was slightly delayed because of it.

Following the incident, he urged the forest department to set up a bird treatment centre inside the zoo itself in order to treat injured birds which are being brought there. ( ANI )
