Crow study in Texas

A recent study found over 200 dead crows near Bastrop, Texas and there was concern that they may have died from the Avian Flu virus

A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's relief

However, he was also able to determine that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with large trucks, and only 2% were killed by car impact

The State hired an Ornithological Behaviorist from Boston, Massachusetts to determine the disproportionate percentages for the large truck versus car  kills

The Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause in short order when crows eat road kill, they always set-up a look-out Crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger

 His conclusion was that the lookout crow could say  "Cah", but could not say "Truck" 


  1. Heh. And here I thought I was gonna see some sociological comment about trucks vs. cars (e.g., the proportions) in Tejas.


Go ahead.
I dare ya!
