I have been finding pieces of squirrels and birds around my house. I noticed a large black bird (I think it's a crow) that appears to be nesting in one of the trees nearby. I suspect that the bird has been killing and eating these animals. Does anyone know if there is something that should or could be done about this? I am also concerned if there might be health/safety risks associated with this problem.

  • It's very unlikely that this Crow or any Crow would be doing this if the animal was alive, they may eat the animal if dead, but not alive! It's more of a Hawk or Owl, doing this, I've seen hawks lurking about in the Park, but no Owl's, also, there's a Coyote around the neighborhood as well so be aware! That Crow is not the Problem!!! Same thing was happening in the Park last season, multiple squirrel's showing up with their heads missing!!! Could be a Fox too!!!

    Agreed. It is the circle of life. Let it be.

    I have never seen a crow do anything like that BUT I have seen hawks swooping down and grabbing squirrels and rabbits.
