If you're tired of COVID, how about a crow vid?

Turguy Tugayli was on Cypress Mountain at the end of 2020 and witnessed a rather unusual theft. While at the top of a lift, where people had piled some backpacks, a crow was able to make-off with someone's belongings.

In his description of the incident, Tugayli says he watched the crow get into the bag before grabbing something inside.

"Just witnessed a crow (Raven) unzip a bag pull the contents out and fly out," he writes.

The video shows the crow pull what looks like a Ziploc bag out of the backpack before fleeing the scene. Watch for yourself below.
