October 30, 2006: Pelican attacks pigeon



Wolf submits this BBC story image and notes "non friday iotd".

Yes, although the image above looks kind of interesting, it's a slow murder in progress. According to the story,
Quote:
Families and tourists in a London park were left shocked when a pelican picked up and swallowed a pigeon.

The unusual wildlife spectacle in St James's Park was caught on camera by photographer Cathal McNaughton.

He said the Eastern White pelican had the unfortunate pigeon in its beak for more than 20 minutes before swallowing it whole.

An RSPB spokesman said: "It is almost unheard of for a pelican to eat a bird. Their diet should be strictly fish."
Well done McNaughton, an awesome shot. Not so well done, rude pelican.

Why is this any worse than eating a fish?

But it's been around. It was in our paper. You probably saw it somewhere else too.

So. You're a pigeon. You're walking around, feelin' safe coz you're with other feathered, billed critters and then-BAM!-you get eaten.

Damn MotherNature can be a bitch.
