Texas dock worker Richard Dunn made an unlikely friend while on the job. "Fox & Friends" reports he gave the title of "man's best friend" to a pelican named Pete. The pair met two months ago when Dunn removed a hook from the pelican's chest and wing.

This is SO neat Barb! It just goes to show how human animals and birds can be when they realize the human being is a friend rather than an enemy!! I have to believe they do have some human instincts in them!!

Love, empathy, and compassion goes a long way in life and is a universal language. Wish more of it would be shared and expressed around the world. Nice share, thank you.
