Last update date June 16, 2020

In late years our life and distance with wild animal are near, cases getting into trouble such as the noise or house invasion due to wild animal occur. We know characteristic of animal well because we do not receive such a life damage and prevent damage occurrence, and let's keep in mind to evade trouble.

As for crow attacking people in group, absolute.
When we face people, we perform in couple pair as it is action to protect egg and baby of nest. It is action on considerable readiness that crow attacks human being bigger than oneself. In addition, we are misunderstood well, but there is not movement that we find with bill while flying in structure of body. When we attack, from the next when eyes do not arrive by all means, we kick with toenail.
