Acadia warns students, community about crow attacks

July 2, 2021
Acadia University’s Department of Safety and Security has emailed students and published an advisory warning campus visitors about aggressive crows. The crows have reportedly been attacking people on campus, particularly those carrying food. Acadia encourages those on campus to carry an umbrella, wear a hat, “make eye contact with the crow,” and avoid wearing shiny objects or carrying food, if possible. “If a crow does swoop at you, wave your hand at the bird and leave the area immediately,” reads the Safety and Security website notice. “Crows have excellent memories so change your route regularly.” National Post (NS)
