    i love ravens and that would be my dream
    I have a picture of me holding one and I was allowed to stroke it, but, apparently, they imprint on one person, and, because they mate for life, that imprint becomes their mate, so you have to raise them from an egg to get an unbreakable bond

    Yep, they do, I know someone with a raven that was rescued as a youngster & he's the only one who can handle him.

    Public transport is a strange thing. I haven't used it recently; is it considered normal to travel with birds? Judging by this picture I'd say so, because the gentleman sat next to the bird owner seems to care more about whatever's on his phone.

    I think that's more to do with the whole 'don't ever, ever make eye contact on public transport' rule. Doesn't matter if the person sitting next to you is a screaming man dressed as a teletubby, you can't acknowledge them... but that doesn't make the person's behaviour particularly normal.

    I had a blackbird for quite a long time.

    I had to take him to work every day, without the knowledge of the Manager.

    Actually, I think he was a she, called Chuckie.

    I understand that the cage door wasnt locked properly, but, why would you have cats, and, more especially, kittens in where a raven, who is quite able to kill a kitten, is kept, especially one that has learnt to take advantage of accidents
    and
    those poor smaller birds in a cage in full sight of two top predators, must be frightened to death
    cruel if you ask me
