Real Live Angry Birds on the Westside
Officers at a Seattle-area police department are under attack. Crows have been attacking cops in the parking lot of an Everett Police Department precinct. They’ve been swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cruisers. One officer used his siren to try to scare away the crows and the birds responded by decorating his car with poo bombs. State Fish and Wildlife Department biologist Ruth Milner said the birds are protecting baby crows that have been kicked out of the nest and are learning to fly. She noted crows can recognize people’s individual features – and they hold grudges. In other words, crows not only do not forgive, they do not forget.
