(sorry if this thread is in the wrong forum, please move it if necessary.)

This story is a bizarre one, it involves a trio of crows and an elderly man taking out his trashcan, suddenly the man was accosted by three crows who appeared to be working in unison, unfortunately I have no TV recorder so the best I can do is relay what the victim said.



Two of them began attacking, one at my eyes and another at my throat, then the other started lifting the lid off the trashcan. I bled a lot and I woke up in the hospital


All I could do was freeze frame the footage and this is what I got



ATS members are smarter the average bear is this even possible? I've seen crows open trashcans before but attempted murder? This is either a hoax or the 'fake news' we keep hearing about. However crows are very smart, were they impoverished and desperate for food? other animals such as certain species of bears and the most recent-the 'Pigzilla' but how do you charge crows with attempted murder? I call BS.

Crows are known both for their intelligence and for holding a grudge, so yeah, I'd believe it.

Three or more crows is a "murder of crows". So I guess two crows would be an attempted murder.

That's what they get for flocking around! A murder most fowl indeed!


Ok, I'll see myself out.

Not sure, but in my experiences, birds are capable of doing some wild things.

When I lived in AZ, my cat would love to lay in the sun on the back patio, but she had to have the slider open or she wouldn’t go out.

So one day, I was watching her sitting there watching some birds. One by one the birds would fly over to her and skim her head, then fly to the other wall. The others would look at each other like they were communicating, and do it over and over again.

Finally, she looks back at me like what’s happening, and I told her to just come inside. They were clearly messing with her, but there was no way to harm her as they were small (can’t remember what type).

Then another time, a hawk walked me home from the bus stop lol.

That's for the court to decide...

Crows are so fantastic, incredible smart with lots of talents.
This "attack" is a bit untimely they're usually not territorial in winter, but they fly at people if they protect the babies.
How fit is this elderly gentleman? If he can barley make it to his trashcan without running out of air I could believe the crows almost killed him.
Also who knows what he did to them to cause the attack...

I've had a couple of blue jays take my hat off and rip my shirt.
Got pecked in the head a few times.
I swatted at them in a futile manner.

I got attacked by Blue Jays as a kid. I was climbing a tree and they attacked me until I fell out. I now know they were protecting their nest, but at the time, I was convinced they had taken out a contract on me. Organized birds are dangerous. They shouldn't be allowed to congregate in groups of more than two. Human lives matter.

We have ravens the size of chickens at the mine site I work at.
Often when im doing drone work, the ravens will get all bent out of shape, start screaming then take to the air.
Ive had to land at least a dozen times because these little buggars would start swooping down and trying to knock my drone out of the sky.
When the Eagles catch eye of my drone, its like a kill on site for them.
They get up high above of then will dive bomb the drone until its landed.
Thankfully, they have never tried taking the drone.
Would be cool to capture of video though.

Dont mess with a mockingbird nor even go near a tree with a nest . Many of a person or large dog have payed the full price for that mistake. Dont take but once to learn that lesson . Results in a bloody headache...literally .
