Police rescue starving toucan from abandoned house
Officials at the Ballena National Marine Park had a new pet for a day, after members of the Tourist Police discovered a starving toucan in an abandoned home near the shore in the Southern Pacific beach town of Dominical.
Police believe the toucan was being kept illegally as a pet before it was abandoned, along with the house. They are now searching for suspects in the case. After receiving emergency care at the national park, the toucan was taken to a rescue center in Quepos.
