The crow: A clever bird

At least 15 people have been injured in a bizarre spate of crow 'attacks' on an Irish college campus.

Two people in CIT requried medical attention after being injured by a crow.

The college was made aware of the string of incidents yesterday after one staff member reported being attacked by a crow in a car park behind CIT’s main entrance.

It is understood the man needed medical attention for scratch wounds caused by the crow.

The injured people also received prescribed antibiotics and tetanus jabs.

The story was first reported by the Irish Examiner.

Speaking to, a spokeswoman for CIT confirmed that  the injuries were “minor” in both cases and there have been no further cases that required medical attention.

However, since the report emerged yesterday more than a dozen people have reported similar incidents.

The Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (CSPCA) will travel to the college campus today to assist in dealing with the situation.

However, they stressed that the full detail of the situation will not be clear until they survey the area.

It may not be as severe as originally feared.
