Today Show weatherman Steve Jacobs pecked in the butt by a pelican live on air

Channel Nine Weatherman Attacked By Pelican

First there was Dave the Macquarie banker who was busted looking at photos of Miranda Kerr live on air and now Today Show weatherman Steve Jacobs is the latest YouTube sensation. He was at Taronga Zoo doing a live weather cross a couple of weeks ago when a frisky pelican pecked his bottom. The footage of him giggling, shrieking and cowering in the corner of the bird enclosure has gone viral. It made the morning shows in the US and even scored him a round of interviews Stateside. And we love anchor Karl Stefanovic in the background repeatedly saying, “You love it” and adding, “It’s not the first time he’s been pinched in the butt by a bird.”
