For a quick laugh, check out this video of a couple pelicans trying to steal an angler’s hooked fish.
If you have ever fished near hungry waterfowl, then you can probably relate to the fishermen in this video. It doesn’t take long for the group of pelicans to see an opportunity for an easy meal and go after the fish.
The angler reels the fish in as fast as he can, avoids one more lunge from the brave pelican, and hauls the fish aboard. The fishermen are getting a good chuckle and think that the pelican incursion is over.
Although none of the pelicans manage to come away with the fish, it is probably safe to assume that they have been successful before and won’t let one failure stop them from trying to get an easy meal again in the future. The anglers in this video will probably be a lot more wary of pelicans while fishing in the future.
