A young woman and her mother saw a wild raven perched on their fence and cawwing for over an hour, as if trying to get their attention. They went to investigate and discovered the bird was in need of a helping hand.
“A wild raven perched himself on our fence and squawked for over an hour,” she wrote. “I went to see what was up with him and saw that he had four porcupine quills stuck in him, three in the side of his face and one in his wing.”
“This video shows my Mom taking out the ones in his face. Very bizarre he let us get that close and even more bizarre he let my Mom pull the quills out. He hung around for the day and was gone the next. Best of luck Wilfred (yeah, I named him).”
It is highly unusual that he let them get so close, but ravens are known to be highly intelligent. I guess he knew these ladies could help him.
