WALSRODE, Germany, May 31 (UPI) -- A pelican in Germany was caught on camera having a frustrating time trying to turn a particularly "lively" fish into a meal.
The video, posted to YouTube, shows the pelican attempting to eat a fish at Walsrode Bird Park in Lower Saxony.
The fish, described as "particularly lively" by the uploader, flops around inside the pelican's beak and even makes it back into the water before being grabbed back into the bird's clutches.
The fish continues to struggle against the pelican's attempts to swallow it and eventually makes it back into the water. It was unclear from the video whether the fish was eventually consumed or if it escaped.
