Another Pelican Video

A reader sent me the following video of a pelican eating a pigeon.

If you recall, St. James Park in London has been the site of pigeon-eatings before, which I covered here and here. This pelican seems to know what it is doing. It grabs the pigeon from behind, where it can offer the least resistance on the way down. It can still flap madly, but the game is already over.
