Kevin, a Missoulan, awoke early one morning to find outside a crow who was whistling and giving commands to his dog. The crow left but only to hang out at the U nearby. “Spring quarter was in session, and the talking crow was holding class on the university’s central green...

When the school bell chimed and the students spilled into the Oval, heading to their next classes… (t)he crow took off low, only a few feet off the ground, with its devoted crowd of canines in noisy pursuit. In and out, the black corvine Pied Piper threaded a mayhem of canines through the students, creating confusion, wonder, and collision. When the students got to their classes, the dog-and-crow show stopped, and the bird again resumed lecturing from a low branch to its rapt class of dogs.”
