The video is posted on an Instagram page called salty.and.sunkissed. “Taking a break from jewelry posts today…. We spent the afternoon at the beach and Shaun and our friend Nathan saved a pelican. Poor thing was tangled up in fishing line (wait for the end when Shaun sings for us) Later I asked Shaun if he always brings a knife to the beach and he said no. I’m so glad he had one on him this time,” reads the caption posted along with the video.

The video opens to show two men standing knee-deep in water holding a pelican. While one of them is seen petting the bird, the other person is seen using a knife trying to cut the fishing line. They patiently get the job done and at the end help the bird fly.
