A herring gull and pelican are on the mend after someone wrapped beer cans around their necks.  Florida wildlife crews received a call Monday about the injured birds on big pine key, about 30 miles east of Key West.  They found the semi-paralyzed brown pelican and a weak, emaciated herring gull. Each had a beer can around its neck like a collar.  Authorities say they were gasping for breath and wouldn't have survived another day.  The birds are said to be doing well and should be released back into the wild soon.
