There are many cases where wild animals bond with humans and develop a special relationship. This goes for Canuck the Crow as well, the protagonist of our story, who is a troublemaking crow that isn’t afraid of humans and loves to hang out with them, especially with his one special friend who sometimes takes care of him. You have truly missed a lot if you have never heard of this sweet crow, who has a significant number of people following him on social media as well, so use this opportunity to meet this amazing fella.
A very friendly bird
Canuck, even though essentially a wild bird since he flies around freely, is extremely friendly with humans since he was raised by a boy who found him when he was just a hatchling pushed out of his nest. Once he grew strong and old enough, the boy let him fly away. But the lovable little bugger kept coming back to the boy and his neighbor, Shawn Bergman.

A social media celebrity
Canuck developed a truly special bond with Shawn Bergman and loves hanging out with him. Shawn loves hanging out with Canuck as well, and he decided to share the adventures of this mischievous crow with the rest of the world. He created a Facebook page, Canuck and I, which now has more than 50.000 followers. Of course, Canuck’s popularity jumped through the roof after the famous incident with the Vancouver police…

The infamous crow
Well, the aforementioned incident took place more than a year ago, when Canuck crashed the crime scene and took off with a piece of evidence! His photo with the knife that he took soon went viral and made him the most popular crow in the world. Fortunately, after a brief chase, Canuck dropped the knife and got away without any charges.

A few more incidents
Being the troublemaker that he is, Canuck the Crow was involved in incidents a few more times. He once attacked a cyclist, who survived this and went back to the crime scene to meet his attacker properly. This incident even granted Canuck an “interview” with CBC Vancouver. Another encounter with Vancouver police happened when Canuck crashed the crime scene of a car accident and left a gift in the form of his poop in one of the police vans that were parked there.

Canuck is an extremely curious and intelligent crow. He always likes to explore new places, learn new things and peck at anything that seems even faintly interesting. His playful and adventurous spirit sometimes gets him in trouble, but that is expected when you are a fun-loving crow.

The cutest thief
It is well-known that crows and other corvids like to steal shiny things. Canuck is no different, his nature simply gets the best of him. That is why he stole that knife from the crime scene, but he also flies off with many other things, like keys, cigarettes, lighters, money, wallets and even credit cards, as you can clearly see.

A crow that enjoys life
Even with his busy schedule of doing various misdeeds and exploring the city of Vancouver, especially its numerous food places where Canuck often hangs out, he still has time to stop and smell the flowers. He knows happiness lies in the smallest things.

Refreshment is always welcome
Since he hangs out with people so much, Canuck has even learned how to utilize some of the human inventions. He knows how to drink from a drinking fountain, and he also knows how to ride a sky train, even though he can fly. I guess he just likes to rest more than other crows.

Canuck knows that exploring and learning new things is important, but he also knows that you must take some time off and just play. That is exactly what he was doing here, with these colorful mini-golf balls. He might not know how to play golf, but that won’t stop him from playing with golf balls and I truly salute his attitude.

This is another example of Canuck’s unwavering and undefeatable spirit. He might not know how to read, but that won’t stop him from staying informed, even if that means just looking at the newspapers photos. He knows that a picture is worth a thousand words.

A fearless rider
As I already mentioned, Canuck loves to ride the sky train in Vancouver. He also likes to ride cars and motorcycles. That’s just who he is – a rider with no fear. He even flies like a maniac sometimes, making him both a courageous rider and a great pilot.

A loyal friend
Even though all these things are truly impressive, the most awe-inspiring thing about Canuck is his love for his friends. He and Shawn Bergman are already best buddies, and I am sure that this is a friendship for life. Canuck’s ability to hang out with both other crows and humans is truly unmatched. I guess you can never have enough friends and Canuck sticks to that motto.
