When pop culture references attack

Angry birds: Three crows nesting in a tree at the parking lot of Everett Police Department’s north precinct have taken to dive-bombing and harassing officers as the cops walk between patrol car and squad room.

Everett police officials don’t believe the attacks by crows have anything to do with the department’s newest recruit, Officer Tippi Hedren, although local seagulls are being watched closely.

Don’t know my own strength: A moose burst through a dining room window at a retirement home in southwestern Sweden, knocking over furniture and flower pots.. The moose briefly got stuck in a doorway before finding its way out and bolting into the wild.

The rampaging moose caused no injury to residents at the retirement home, but an employee was tested for rabies after he was struck by a flying squirrel that followed the moose in.

We’ll have the jumbo popcorn: Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo said it has artificially inseminated one of its Asian elephants, 32-year-old Chai, and should know within four months if the cow is pregnant.

Prior to the 15-minute procedure conducted in the zoo’s elephant medical chute, Chai’s keepers took her for an evening out that included “Water for Elephants” at the Cinerama and a bath at the Elephant Car Wash.
