Friendly but Foul-mouthed Crow Befriends Children at an Oregon Elementary SchoolA friendly yet foul-mouthed crow visited Allen Dale, an Oregon Elementary School out of the blue. The animal looked into classrooms and pecked on doors. Fortunately, the avian wasn’t aggressive at all! It landed on some people’s heads, and seemed to love the kids. It did help itself to some snacks that weren’t meant for him, though.According to Naomi Imel, an education assistant at the institution, the bird could actually speak a few phrases, which was a bit odd for a crow. “It was like a parrot,” Imel said. “It was the weirdest thing.” The bird could say “What’s up?” and “I’m fine” and “a lot of swear words.”Because the bird was a wild animal that refused to leave the premises, the school called for animal control. In an interesting turn of events, they decided that “it was not in their jurisdiction to catch the crow,” Imel narrated. A wildlife officer then turned up and successfully captured the crow after spending a night outside the school. It turns out the crow, who was actually called Cosmo, was rescued and sent to a home in a family farm. “While the family was gone for Thanksgiving, they said a neighbor captured the bird and took him to a local animal sanctuary. The sanctuary, not realizing he was habituated to humans, released him, likely in Grants Pass.” Oregon Live further detailed. Image credit: Oregon Live#Crows #Birds #FunnyAnimals #Rescue #Oregon
