EVERETT, Wash. — Police in Everett, Wash., have found themselves in a flap with some unusual suspects: an angry flock of birds.

Crows have been attacking officers in the parking lot of the Everett Police Department’s north precinct station. They’ve been swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cars.

Lt. Bob Johns says he recently was flanked by the aggressive birds and “got zinged.” He says, “They’re like velociraptors.”

The Daily Herald reports one officer tried to use his siren to scare away the crows. The birds responded by decorating his car with droppings.
