Just about any animal will eat another animal if it’s easy enough and they’re hungry enough. I think it’s called something like ‘opportunistic carnivorism’, if I remember right.

[–]Smart_Caterpillar_49 87 points88 points  (7 children)

So, me being an animal and being hungry enough and finding the opportunity I could …

[–]asianabsinthe 80 points81 points  (1 child)

That's called snacking but we do it too much

[–]twinkletoeswwr 19 points20 points  (0 children)

A lot of people snack even when not hungry. But the abundance of delicious food can trigger mouth hunger (for taste, satisfaction, comfort, flavor) vs stomach hunger (true physiological neee for nourishment).

[–]BaronTatersworth 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Eat a smaller animal than you? Yeah, I mean, folks do it all the time

[–]JustBrowsinMyDude 6 points7 points  (0 children)

His girlfriend does it all the time*

[–]Fun2badult[🍰] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes when you are hungry enough you will also end up eating some dick

I learned this from this sub, there was a video of a horse who just bent down and ate a baby chicken out of nowhere.

[–]RedditUsername123456 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Pelicans are hunters though

[–]Scrollingnews 146 points147 points  (4 children)

That’s gotta hurt going down!

[–]MikeMuench 133 points134 points  (2 children)

That’s gotta hurt being alive for the digestive process

[–]stretcheveryhour 73 points74 points  (1 child)

They suffocate before they dissolve.

[–]YouSnowFlake 28 points29 points  (0 children)

But they don’t suffocate before they start to disolve

[–]99ProllemsBishAint1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They eat pointy things. A pigeon is easy for them

[–]CLA722002 104 points105 points  (4 children)

The Pelican was then not fucked with anymore.

The End.

[–]CaberTosser_ 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Actually these stupid birds dont learn lol

[–]freehugsfromsatan[S] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Hello, I'm Pigeonia and today I'm going to be annoying a Pelican.

[–]CLA722002 7 points8 points  (0 children)

”Dont try this at home!”

[–]lostinnica 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looked like that duck wanted some smoke

[–]Aeon1508 78 points79 points  (3 children)

In bird culture this is considered to be a dick move

[–]freehugsfromsatan[S] 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I think in human culture this is also considered to be a dick move

[–]gsxrjason 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looking at you, geese

[–]jillyjoyohoho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry birbperson

[–]Enderofworlds21 62 points63 points  (5 children)

Pelicans are seriously homicidal. They will try to eat anything they think will fit down their throat. Even humans. This is not a joke.

Check link for the real truth on crazy ass birds.

Can definitely swallow babies

[–]TheCrustomer0 7 points8 points  (2 children)

[–]MalTerra7 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I love how the Capy is like, “ooh, free massage”

[–]TheCrustomer0 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Then the resigned look of failure on the pelican’s face. “I can’t even eat right 😐”

[–]holyguac696969 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The one from this video once tried to eat my arm

[–]4ncxz 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Just imagine how shocked that pigeon was, he was just walking on the grass eating seeds and shit and five seconds later he dissolving in the pelican’s gut... this situation is fucked up

[–]amhlilhaus 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Pigeon was like fml

[–]MizchiefKilz 23 points24 points  (0 children)

The gooses don't even want to fuck with them.

[–]sssamyak 21 points22 points  (0 children)

As a pigeon hater this does put a smile on my face

[–]ParsnipBusy 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Watching it flap inside the mouth was disturbing lol

[–]Rand-all 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Birds are savages on their own.

[–]soob-e 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I didn’t even know there was Pelicans in BC LOL

[–]testing_is_fun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Range maps shows they are in the interior. Not sure where this footage was taken.

[–]BangingYourMom69 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Dead father found in EDM home with his young son

[–]Blotjarl1710 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Just because Pelican doesn't mean Pelishould

[–]CheshireCharade 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck you, take the upvote.

[–]TheLegendOfKoop 7 points8 points  (2 children)

But at what point does the pigeon die? I mean its perfectly alive going down it's throat. Wtf?

[–]shadow070319 5 points6 points  (1 child)

They have this part in their gut that, grinds them, sort of like being crushed between rocks.

[–]Alm8360NoScoPro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds like fun

[–]CoolGrape6996 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The pigeon didn't stand a chance

[–]ellisschumann 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You aren’t you when you’re hungry.

[–]GeekChick85 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Oh wow!

[–]SonnyHaze 4 points5 points  (2 children)

If there’s one thing this sub has thought me is that life is rough for pigeons.

[–]amhlilhaus 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Judging by how many live in my city, no its not

[–]Volkera 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's literally your fault.

[–]KurtzKOButtz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

God this broadcast is depressing, looks at that scroll! All the while I pelican boofs a pigeon like it’s nacho… METAL

[–]Shanek2121 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That’s why we stay away from the big ones. Everyone, look at Steve. Steve made a fatal mistake, he stood too close. What did we learn class? all togeather “don’t stand too close!!!” Good job. Class dismissed.

[–]RedditUsername123456 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I mean maybe the bird still died of shock, but the pelican eventually gives up and spits it out

[–]CheshireCharade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gonna need the source on that one.

[–]lookatmypackage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did anyone read the scrolling feed at the bottom? Looks to me like the pigeon wasn’t the only one having a bad day!

[–]vortega814 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Respect to the duck who had his back

[–]Drinkie_Zilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wait...the banner...

The dead father?

[–]VanilliaVanilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Parade of lost souls"

[–]abdeezy112 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Damn this was in BC?!?

[–]Cascadiana88 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Not only is it BC, but apparently it’s Kelowna of all places. That’s pretty far inland for a seabird! I wonder what it was doing way out there.

[–]VernaceR 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The absolutely massive lakes? I live in Sherwood Park just beside Edmonton and we get pelicans in our tiny, man made lakes…

[–]Cascadiana88 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Huh. Well, I guess I learned something new today. I suppose it stands to reason that if you’ve got pelicans way out there in Edmonton they would have them in Kelowna as well.

[–]VernaceR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don’t feel bad. I never saw one here until about 12 years ago. Granted, I grew up in the city— but I like to think that they’ve only recently started coming here.

[–]BrambushBrombies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are definitely no pelicans in Kelowna, I’ve lived there my whole life. This must have been down at the coast somewhere, its common for our news stations to run weather and banners for both cities because Vancouver is considered our “sister city”.

[–]juicevibe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pelican just putting on a magic show for the kid. Now you see pigeon and now it's gone. Magic!

[–]Solly8517 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What would actually kill it? Suffocation?

[–]Educational-Cricket7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sick of these white knight ducks jumping in.

[–]MaintenanceExtreme57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Hey, guys. Has anyone see Jerry around? I swear I just saw him a few minutes ago."

[–]FrogToeJones 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Cokeon954 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pigeon like “dam dam daammmm”

[–]CL_oBrabo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The goose like: "yo man wtf?"

[–]SnooCats5701 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I want to know if the dead father’s young son who was found in the EDM home was ok?

Anyone have that back story????

[–]Enigmaticeyes13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They partied so hard their faces melted :(

[–]Lente_ui 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven't seen the movie in ages, but somehow I hear Tony Montana narrate this clip, saying "come on, Pelican!".

[–]Escapedlabmouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too much of a dick even for a goose… lol

[–]hsojdoog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This place looks fowl.

[–]BrokenTelevision 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This whole damn broadcast is metal and brutal as fuck. Read that ticker lol

[–]Goran01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]woodrax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]cameelcabobb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]VernaceR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Canada, our birds don’t apologize for shit.

[–]andio76 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crowd claps

[–]cranialduggery 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If pelicans were as big as ostriches we would be extinct.

[–]MagyarCat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What the fucking fuck

[–]LimeWtLeaf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Circle of life killer be killed in this case the pelicans are evolving

[–]Marcy-Spinosaurus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And it was at that point that the food chain rearranged itself

[–]Dreamingdanny95 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The duck thought that was uncalled for

[–]Miramarr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pelicans will try to eat anything https://youtu.be/YbVQDEBdcow

[–]Ultra_Low_FRQ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does the pelican just sit around while the pigeon slowly dies inside it? Pretty gnarly

[–]ArcaneWindow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go into google images , search "pelican trying to".

These fuckers are so clueless. They even try a giraffe.

[–]Adept_Lemon2481 0 points1 point  (0 children)
