You may be familiar with Canuck the Crow. The bird had made lots of headlines in the past including riding on the sky train and stealing a knife from an active crime scene the police were investigating.
But now some are threatening to harm the crow after it attacked a mail carrier.
The owner said, "Canuck has had an encounter with the mailman where he ended up biting him and causing bleeding, which I’m obviously not pleased with,” Bergman told Global News. “He’s just defending his nest. It’s just territorial instincts.
“Because of that, the mail hasn’t been getting delivered for quite some time now.”
Bergman said his residence and two others have been impacted, leaving 12 people without home mail delivery. Bergman said he contacted Canada Post to find a resolution. He suggested the postal worker carry a small, lightweight umbrella that could create a “nice little shield between [Canuck] and the mail delivery person.”
He said his efforts to resolve the situation have been met with a “cold, corporate response.”
Bergman received a response from Canada Post that read, in part: “We take customer concerns and the safety of our employees very seriously. In the absence of this being classified as a pet and a pet owner who will take full responsibility for its actions, we are leaving the matter to authorities who deal with wildlife. In the absence of that, we are safeguarding our employees by not delivering to areas where the crow has been known to attack until such time as the hazard no longer exists.”
