  3. The Everett, Wash., Police Department parking lot has come under attack from a flock of courageous crows.

    Like a scene pulled from the video game Angry Birds, the crows “dive-bomb” officers as they walk from their cruisers into the precinct building. “They’re like velociraptors,” says one lieutenant. Retaliation from the officers has only resulted in a torrent of droppings from above. Worse, the birds are conspiring: Three birds have been seen working as a team, with two causing a distraction while the other strikes.

    Despite the nuisance, a city spokesman says they police and city workers will “wait out the aggression,” so as to not provoke the crows any further. In the meantime, employees should “use umbrellas to defend themselves if need be.”

    Luckily, video is available.
