If I were a bird... These crows know just what I am thinking, apparently. Why the police?
She noted crows also can recognize people's individual features. And they hold grudges.
"If your cops have done something that (the crows) perceive as a threat, they could be keying in on them because they're all wearing the same kind of
uniform," Milner said.
Hmmmm... I don't find that hard to believe. I wonder what ticked them off. A group of uniformed "bad guys" uproot or burn-down their favorite field
Surely the police are not their only targets. In a sizeable town there must be other people that torque them off. If these are civic-minded cuervos
then there must be other folks the birds might feel hostile toward and not just our uniformed public servants.
In addition to the officers, at least a dozen city employees have encountered the angry crows, and some have complained about being attacked, city
spokeswoman Kate Reardon said. But she said police and city workers have agreed to let the crows be, and wait out the aggression.
Not exactly hard and cutting news but does have an interesting tidbit about crows holding grudges. Sounds like something out of an old Hitchcock movie
though. Or perhaps something from the originator of the detective novel. I'll never again doubt their ability to hold grundges. Nevermore!
