Take a long, hard look at this bird. It doesn’t look as if he or his brethren would ever do any harm to you, now does it? Think again.

Apparently, just such a jackdaw (yes, that’s what they’re called) has been terrorizing a village in England. The residents of Cromwell, Nottinghamshire have reported that a local jackdaw has gotten a bit out-of-hand [1].

The bird’s crimes include: taking down laundry from lines, crawling up some poor man’s trousers, turning pages of newspapers before you’re ready and similar dastardly deeds.

Residents of the town has come to believe that the jackdaw is acting alone, a lone rogue in all of bird-kind, perhaps a formerly domesticated bird that was released into the wild and is acting out. But we at the Clog have other theories. What if all the jackdaws are conspiring against us? What if the day comes that you will not be able to sit outside with a newspaper without risking full-on jackdaw assault?

Think about it.
