"Poe" talking crow missing
Red Lodge: The Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is asking for the publics help as it looks for their beloved talking crow, Poe, who escaped Friday afternoon at about 1:40. "We thought Poe could only fly 10 to 20 feet at a time but he seemed to use the wind to his favor and soared off to the east of YWS" said Michelle Marion, executive director. We have been searching for him ever since. Because he can't fly normally he will be very vulnerable to predators. It is possible he could show up in someone's yard. If anyone sees a black bird that seems friendly or talks (most common phrases are 'momma', 'hello' and 'oh my gaud') PLEASE call us right away at either 446-1133 or 426-0146. Here are the ways to differentiate a crow from a raven...the crow has a smaller and thinner beak, the crow is at least 1/3 smaller then a raven, when flying the raven has an angled tail (like a V or diamond) and a crow has a much flatter tail (no wedge). "Honestly, if you see any black bird acting strangely please call us and we'll take a look". Poe is a very special bird...
