Crows attack cops

Crows attack cops: "An Everett, Washington police department is under attack by a flock of crows. According to the Associated Press, the birds have been 'swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cars' in the police station parking lot. From the AP:

'If your cops have done something that (the crows) perceive as a threat, they could be keying in on them because they're all wearing the same kind of uniform,' said (State Fish and Wildlife Department biologist Ruth) Milner.

In addition to the officers, at least a dozen city employees have encountered the angry crows, and some have complained about being attacked, city spokeswoman Kate Reardon said. But she said police and city workers have agreed to let the crows be, and wait out the aggression.

She said the employees will be cautious but can use umbrellas to defend themselves if need be.
