A pair of beavers walked into a Cumberland Farms location in Fitchburg MA in late November.
Surveillance footage shared by the company shows them walking into the store. Shortly after,
one leaves while the other browses a bit more before being ushered out by staff.

Or she forgot she was the getaway driver? And ultimately, her accomplice forgotten to rob the cashier?

@Roberta,
when I had a pet crow namd Murphy when I was a kid. The crow would fly from home most days at the end of school and sit on my handlebars and Id ride him home. He could tell time and had perfect balance on the bike. Wed pass people on the way home and hed give this wahhhh!, a kind of long low caw. When Id get home Id feed him his meow mix with kibbles and then, when he finished hed come in and play with my pencils while I did my homework.
We had a bird tower where Murphy would go and take a dump. He NEVER messed on the floor.

He and the cat got along like real buds . They would often sleep together and Murphy would groom the cat and the cat would stare out the window and murphy would stare back and caww until we left the cat out or murphy in. OUtside, murphy would hop along side the cat , he wouldnt fly. When he felt like it he would just walk into the kennel house where our hunting dogs were and hed raise a little sand with the Irish setters.

@cicerone imposter,
I could write a short book about Murphy. all action, no descriptions .
Later in my life I got another crowling from a petting zoo because the crow was EVIL. I tried my ass off to make this crow civilized and he would peck everyone till he drew blood. He was no Murphy. I called him Loki. AFter a year f getting pecked by the steel jawed monster, I took him over to the Conowingo Dam and released him to be among other crows.
Earlier I clipped his wings so he couldnt fly , so before I could release him it took several months before he molted an regrew his wingtip feathers so he could have close motor skills in his wings.
Loki was a real moonster and he even pecked me bloody as I released him.
Im still looking for a pet crow I have several that hang around the big barn in the back field and I ofetn just go and throw corn and stuff to them. They all gather up when they see me but dont come too close.

Thats the first step

@farmerman,
The only animal we owned was a golden retriever when we lived in Fremont, CA, many decades ago. He was a feisty fellow who chewed on our wooden frame home, and damaged some of our siding. When we had to move to Chicago, I gave him away, but I still remember that dog with love. I promised myself another dog when I retired, but I travel too much. Now, I'm too old to care for myself and a dog. My wife has enough problems.

@farmerman,
Murphy sounds like the kind of pet a crow should be. Glad you were able to experience his crowdom.

BTW: I had a parakeet named Billie. Smart, fun, and loving. (She dive-bombed the dog.) The next parakeet we had (Goldie) would have bitten our fingers off if we gave her the chance. Some boids make great pets and some don't. C'est la vie.

My mother once kept a pet pigeon. It was a good bird, until it became older, then it began attacking people. They gave it away, eventually.

Hungry Deer May Be Changing How Things Sound In The Forest
Quote:
Hungry deer in the northeastern U. S. are likely changing the acoustics of their forests by eating up bushes, small trees and other leafy plants that normally would affect the transmission of natural sounds such as bird calls.
