A Pelican has been put down after it was brutally attacked by a group of people in Melbourne.
Two men witnessed the vicious act, where the bird was stomped on and kicked in a "completely senseless" attack in broad daylight on a suburban street in St Albans last tuesday.
It happened in broad daylight around 12.30pm.
The bird suffered multiple breaks to its wings and ribs and had to be put down.
Anyone who may have witnessed the attack is urged to contact CrimeStoppers.
