Vancouver International Airport's (YVR) latest crow tenant has moved out, for now.
According to a tweet from YVR, Moira the crow was "safely re-released" on Monday.
However, the response to Moira's banishment has been less than enthusiastic.
Just before YVR's tweet, @crowYVR, a Twitter account that has been documenting Moira's life in the airport, had warned of a "birdnapping with a tweet stating, "Being manhandled is NOT APPRECIATED."
We take great care with birds at YVR & have a team of biologists to assess & monitor wildlife at our airport. After weeks of happily living in-terminal, our most recent resident crow has officially been safely re-released!

The account also replied to YVR, accusing the airport of not giving credit for the photo of Moira.
It remains to be seen whether travellers will see Moira perched around the airport again.
