This is the amusing moment a sleeping pelican scared away a tourist who tried to pet it in Australia.

Footage shows the annoyed bird raising its wings while screaming at the man at Henly beach in Adelaide on April 5.

Onlooker Andrew Fokeas said: ‘Make sure you don’t mess with pelicans even when they’re asleep.’
