Could Canuck the Crow still be winging his way around Vancouver?
The beloved bird has been missing since Aug. 30. One tipster sent Canuck’s “human,” Shawn Bergman, photos of a “friendly” crow encountered Saturday in Yaletown, and Bergman has been searching the area diligently since then.
The crow was described as being “‘friendly with people, but seemed sedated or seemed as if something was off” when it was photographed on the patio of the Yaletown Starbucks, across from the Canada Line station.
“Keep in mind, Canuck may have had his tags removed. Even though this crow doesn’t have tags, it still may be him," said Bergman.
He says another possible sighting was made at Beatty and Robson in downtown Vancouver.
“So, after a thorough search, I came up empty handed," Bergman wrote on Facebook. "I did run into a few people out looking as well, but no Canuck. I will continue the search again today. However if anybody does happen to meet this Crow downtown, please email me at [email protected].”
Since’s Canuck’s disappearance, rumours have swirled about what may have happened to the bird, including one possible hoax posted on Craigslist regarding the discovery of a dead crow bearing two bands.
A $10,000 reward remains in place for the safe return of Canuck the Crow.
