East Van crow infiltrates crime scene

The Vancouver Sun reported on a mischievous crow that took off with a knife from an East Vancouver crime scene.

Patrick Mooney, UBC professor of landscape architecture, researches birds in urban dwellings.

“They become quite acclimatized to people and they adapt to us, but this particular bird who wants to interact with people in general? … I would surmise that this is because they had a particular person who fed them or raised them,” Mooney said.
