CLAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Don’t feed the crow. Oops, it’s too late.

Police in one central Pennsylvania community say they responded to a “nuisance crow” call on Wednesday that has its roots in people who have fed and befriended the bird in the past.

Greenfield Township police Chief Andrew Campbell tells WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1HPHHq5 ) that the bird - nicknamed Frank by those who frequent Claysburg Park - swooped down on a woman who was walking around a track and startled her.

The chief says police are trying to reintroduce the bird to its natural habitat after it got in the habit of being fed by park visitors.

Police caged the bird and turned it over to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The chief says, “We’ve had a dog running loose, a bear call, but never a crow.”
