VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - Not only people, but animals too, are feeling the impacts of Hurricane Irma as the powerful storm churns up the west coast of Florida.

The Daytona Beach Shores Department of Public Safety posted a picture on its Facebook page of an injured pelican rescued by officers Sunday afternoon.

Officers wrapped the long-legged bird up to keep it comfortable before bringing it back to the station to safely ride out the rest of the storm, police said.

Officials did not say where the pelican was found or how it was injured.
