    According to Royal Caribbean officials, the pelican landed on deck 12 of the port-side of Jewel of the Seas on Wednesday. The ship was returning to Tampa after a trip to Mexico. Ship staff captured the injured bird and brought it to Hillsborough County Animal Services the next day.

    BluePearl Veterinary Partners are treating the bird for dehydration and a minor wing injury that will require rehabilitation.
