Canada's postal service confirmed on Tuesday that it has suspended mail delivery to a Vancouver neighborhood after repeated attacks on its carriers by a crow. Canuck the crow would often swoop in and peck at carriers delivering to three homes on the city's east side. On one occasion, according to media reports, a carrier was left bleeding.

Canada Post spokesman Phil Legault said in a statement to AFP that the safety of its employees is "of most importance." He cited several incidents "in this neighborhood when our letter carriers were attacked by a crow." Residents, he said, have been advised where to go to pick up their mail, adding that postal service would resume "as soon as possible when it's safe."


A bird believed to be the very same crow gained notoriety in 2016 for stealing a knife from a crime scene. It has also been spotted riding the city's metro and earlier this month got into a flap with a McDonald's diner while trying to steal her breakfast.
