Nearly two hundred crows were found dead on a highway near Topeka, Kansas.
As there was concern that they may have died from Bird Flu, a Bird Pathologist examined the remains. Thankfully, he determined they did not die of bird flu, but instead by trauma from vehicular impact. Oddly, 98% had been hit by trucks, while only 2% had been hit by cars.
Due to the irregularities and the possibility of an unknown disease affecting birds to make them want to breed with moving trucks, the Kansas Bureau of Health hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine the reason behind the disproportionate percentages for crows killed by impact with car and crows killed by impact with truck.
The Ornithological Behaviorist discovered the cause in short order. As crows are extremely intelligent birds, one of their flock always performs the duty of lookout when they peck at roadkill on the highway.
However, they were not intelligent enough to realize that, although every member of the flock can saw "Caw!", not one can say "Truck!"
