Two pelicans die at Kokkarebellur

Two more pelicans have died at Kokkarebellur Bird Sanctuary and Madarahalli, near here on Friday. A pelican that took ill and fell from a tree recently, died on Friday.

Speaking to DH, Hejjarle Balaga president B Lingegowda said, "The sick pelican was fed with jaggery water and medicines. But it did not respond to the treatment and died."

At Madarahalli, a villager noticed the carcass of a pelican floating in the lake and informed the Veterinary department officials.

Veterinarians Dr L Hanumegowda and Dr Manohar rushed to the spot and buried the carcass, after sending the viscera for testing.
