Corvus ravens are considered to be the third smartest animal behind apes and dolphins. Most ravens have incredible problem-solving techniques. For the raven in this video, his solution to having porcupine quills stuck in his head was to turn to friendly humans for a helpful hand.
The wild raven had been perched on the family’s fence for an hour, constantly squawking before they went over to see what it wanted. They were amazed as it sat there still while the mom of the family removed the quills from the side of his head.
As Edgar Allan Poe? might have put it: Quoth the raven, “OW.”?
Now give that clever raven a lollipop and send him on his way, but don’t forget to bill his insurance!
