So you like those amazing, mystical blah blah...
These bastards like to peck the sheep their eyes out leaving them dying in agony.
You should rather kill it whenever you see it. Do you love a psychopathic politician because he's smart?

I have heard about people going out and shooting as many crows as they can. They do not eat or use the poor birds. These sick men actually consider it fun or some kind of a game.
When I heard about it made me very angry and sad that people could be so cruel and pathetic. We live in a world were being cruel is considered cool.
I am the type of person that will walk around worms on a rainy day. I just do not see the need to kill something for no reason.
They hold funerals
Tony says, "A crow 'funeral' is where the deceased bird is surrounded by members of the same species, in significant numbers." Crows descend from the trees, and they walk around the bird on the ground. And then they fly off. It's very likely that the crows are learning from this experience. Is there danger here? What does the death of this particular crow mean to the social structure of that community of crows? It seems to be a little more complicated than just paying homage.
Crow Funeral with Tony Angell.
i heard this story once, dont know if its true, but its sounds like it could happen.
a guy, researcher really, had some crows. he taught them that coins equal food. if they dropped a coin in a slot, food came out. really basic. then he taught them that different coins equal different amounts of food.
he then set up the food dispenser outside and let the crows go. he started to make hundreds an month from them. it appears that the ones he let go taught wild crows about the food dispenser and they started to collect coins as well.
again, dont know if this is true, but it sounds like something they would do.
