Can do search on "pelican eating a pigeon." That finds what I believe to be the 
one Mark is referring to. Actually many bits of film and photos of this on the 
internet. For example

Plus herons and gulls eating ducklings, lots of raptor stuff, etc, it goes on 
and on. Most are probably genuine, combined with often puerile comments, some 
bits of film are clearly contrived.....

There is a classic video of a pelican (can't remember which species) in
one of London's parks grabbing and eating a feral pigeon in front of a
lot of horrified people. The sequence is quite eye-opening.
