Severe damage

They are large and unfortunately not very fast when flying. White Pelicans are here in the summer for breeding and then leave for parts south. Unfortunately this bird won't be able to make that trip. For some reason it was on the Powell hiway and was hit by a car. As you can see, his lower beak was broken off, the only thing holding the bone is the skin. He was humanely euthanized.
