MAKES SENSE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT
They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the crows, and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to every one's relief. However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impacts with trucks, and only 2% were killed by car impacts.
The Province then hired an animal behaviorist to determine the disproportionate percentages for truck versus car kill. He determined the cause in short order.
When crows eat road kill, they always post a "look out Crow" in a nearby tree, to warn of impending danger.
His conclusion was that the look out Crow could say "Cah" but he could not say "Truck".
Sorry. I just had to share this joke with you - It was printed in this week's Northshore Sentinel, our local paper. It made me laugh.
