PELICAN A NAUGHTY BIRD
"Trout Hog" Is Charge Made Against
Him by Professor of University
Excitement Is rife in the wild an
imal community of the Yellowstone
National park since the scandal about
Mr. Pelican received public attention.
The ducks are quacking about It, the
squirrels are chattering it and the bob
cats are scattering It broudcust lu
their shrill voices.
Throughout ull the whispers and
nudges of neighbors as he pusses, Mr.
Pelican maintains his stately mien,
seemingly unconscious of the Jibes
of the multitude. His actions would
Indicate he still holds bis valued place
lo the community.
His trouble started with the charge
by Prof. Hurry B. Ward, head of the
department of zoology of the Univer
sity of Illinois, that he is a "trout hog"
and vlolutor of all the tenets of good
sportsmanship.' Proof of these charges
probably will mean tliut Mr. Pelican
will become an outcust with every
one's door closed to him aud every
one's bund Hgulnst hliu.
Professor Wurd Is conducting an
ihiiiiHliv Investigation for the fed
eral bureau of Uslieries at Luke Yel
lowstone In Yellowstone National
park us to the relationship between
the pellcun and the trout supply.. His
Investigation, which hus been pro
gressing several weeks, will continue
through the present season.
The flock of pelicans that live and
breed on Luke Yellowstone numbers
about 400. They "summer" aristocrat
ically at the lnke, feustlng on the
best the lund affords, from spring un
til September, then go to their winter
resorts along the Gulf of Mexico.
The bird diets almost exclusively on
fish, and. bo fur us the Yellowstone
and other Rocky mountain lakes and
streams are concerned, this means ex
clusively on trout. He estlmutes that ;
the 400 pelicans consume more trout
than ure takeu during an entire sea
son by sportsmen.
The pelican Is no respecter of size
limits or open seasons, Professor Ward
charges. He declared he had seen a
platoon of 30 pelicans ranged across
a Btreuin In regular formation, prey
ing on the trout us they swam up to
spawn. Hitherto the stream had
yielded trout eggs by the millions, but
hatchery men this year couio gainer
only a fraction of the normal amount.
The fact Is grunted thut Mr. Pell
can's home life Is above reproach. He
Is a good provider, a good husbnnd
and father and Is strictly monogam
ous. For the 400 birds In the lake
flock, there are just 200 nests, one for
each couple and one mate for each
bird. There are no "triangles" In the
If further Investigations Justify It.
Professor Ward will ask the federal
government to bar the pelican as sum
mer visitors from the park;
