I remembered it!

I used to love the tale of a chihuahua on the beach that was yipping annoyingly, as chihuahua's do. A pelican eventually had enough and scooped it up in it's bill and ate it. That is untrue as far as I know.

THIS on the other hand, is real.

Pelican swallows pigeon in park

Families and tourists in a London park were left shocked when a pelican picked up and swallowed a pigeon.
The unusual wildlife spectacle in St James's Park was caught on camera by photographer Cathal McNaughton.
He said the Eastern White pelican had the unfortunate pigeon in its beak for more than 20 minutes before swallowing it whole.
