A pelican eating a pigeon? This country is craaaazy!
I particularly like that the BBC covered this. I love the headline: Pelican swallows pigeon in park.
Reports a photographer who happened upon the scene:
Mr McNaughton, from the Press Association, said: "The pelican was on the towpath preening itself, and there were a lot of tourists watching it.A bit of a struggle? For twenty minutes? Ladies and gentlemen, the British art of understatement.
"Then the bird got up and strolled along until it reached one of the pigeons, which it just grabbed in its beak.
"There was a bit of a struggle for about 20 minutes, with all these people watching. The pelican only opened its mouth a couple of times.
"Then it managed to get the pigeon to go head first down its throat. It was kicking and flapping the whole way down."
