Angry birds dive-bomb police officers

EVERETT, Wash. — Officers at a Seattle-area police department have found themselves in a flap with some unusual suspects: an angry flock of birds.

Crows have been attacking police in the parking lot of an Everett Police Department precinct station. They've been swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cars.

Lt. Bob Johns said he recently was flanked by the aggressive birds and "got zinged."

"They're like velociraptors," Johns said.

One officer used his siren to try to scare away the crows, but it didn't work. The birds responded by decorating his car with droppings, The Daily Herald reported.

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.

On Michoacán.Net the past few days they were talking about gopher control. Finding some solutions their conversations slipped into discussion about crows. This above news article naturally came to mind.

Are you trying to say that they are just like every other message board where topics tend to drift off topic?

Not unlike all others, no. That topic did have a progression to take it to crows though. Seems an expert says this part of Mexico has no gophers but is some other similar burrowing creature, one that many oldtimers eat - kind of like the Beverly Hillbillys and Granny's gopher gravy, I guess. After a couple "eewwww" responses someone else suggested him and his partner have been eating crow all their lives and asks, "What's the difference?" One reply was, the feathers.

OK, from there it got into the virtues of crows. See how simple the progression? Kind of like this one that started out as an amusing newsclip about crows attacking police and in just four posts talking about Mexican burrowing animals and gopher gravy. Almost time to move it to the Comida forum. If only we had a recipe and some photos.
