Florida: Six rehabilitated pelicans released back into wild at beach clean-up

Watch the touching moment police released six rehabilitated pelicans at a beach clean-up in Hollywood, Florida.

Officers from the Hollywood Police Department released the birds back into the wild during a clean-up initiative on 24 January.
