Fishing rigs hurting birds

Gulf Coast bird rescuers are warning about a type of fishing gear they say is killing and maiming seabirds, particularly at a fishing pier at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Fishing gear called a sabiki rig is causing injury and death to sea birds, such as pelicans, cormorants, herons, terns and egrets.
