"recently i learned that crows and ravens have a baffling habit of sneaking up on other animals and pulling on their tails. the behavior seems to be relatively universal among various species of crows and ravens across the world. they seem to do it with anything they can find that has a tail, ranging from something as small and harmless as squirrels to something as large and deadly as eagles. i have absolutely no idea what their motives are, other than to be mischievous"
