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.
"There is no route out of the maze. The maze shifts as you move through it because it is alive. "
