Pelicans Crash Pepperdine University Graduation

MALIBU — A pair of pelicans crashed a graduation ceremony at Pepperdine University in Malibu over the weekend.

The long-beaked birds flew in Saturday as the class of 2018 was receiving diplomas outdoors on a lawn overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Video broadcast by KABC-TV shows one of the big birds landed among seated observers who managed to toss it back into the air, only to have it land on a red carpet at the center of the ceremony.

The pelican resisted efforts by several men to get it to move along, but it finally waddled away.
