An image of a crow flagrantly disregarding UK knife laws made the rounds of social media this weekend.
A viral picture of a crow carrying a knife in its beak has been explained as an effect of global warming.
The funny picture was shared widely on social media with captions such as: “Come at me, bro”.
Crows are remarkably intelligent birds who will investigate anything they find on the ground.
On though a penchant for shiny things is more often associated with magpies, crows are also fans of all things metallic.
Magpies ,it seems, are far too busy smoking cigarettes to bother looking for knives.
A picture of a black and white bird in Manchester, holding a disgarded cigarette in its beak as though it was smoking it went viral earlier in the week.
Because “global warming”. Right.
