As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Nevermore: Police want to track down car-attacking raven in Maine town

Wed, 28 May 2014 11:40:00 CST

RICHMOND, Maine - Wanted: A raven that's attacking cars in Maine.

Richmond Police Chief Scott MacMaster tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1reiVHm) that the bird has attacked three vehicles, causing $500 in damage in one case.

One owner said he watched the bird land and see its reflection in a window before attacking. The bird damaged gaskets around windshield and windows and the windshield wipers on at least three cars.

One of the victims wants to make to make sure raven attacks are "nevermore." He wants to shoot the bird.

MacMaster advised them to contact the Maine Warden Service.

The raven is not the only animal to attack a car in town in recent weeks. Last month, police had to deal with two goats that climbed atop a car.
