Yes it is outlandish. I notice later on the same page (top of column 2) it says "mammals, small dogs probably (Campbell & Sonter 1985., M.A. Cameron" - is that Professor Margaret Cameron?)" I don't know about a on-line version but surely some of the local, older, especially banding folk, would have the printed version of Australian Birds.

Philip is quite correct in his reference to the material in HANZAB.
However I had always believed that the reports of a Pelican eating a small dog were an urban - or possibly coastal - legend. I have been unable to track down an on-line version of the reference cited in HANZAB (Campbell J and C Sonter "Australian Birds 20:1-3) which from other references is apparently titled "Unusual food items of pelicans".
Does anyone have a copy of the article or otherwise know the provenance of the story?
