Watch This Irresponsible Raven Eat a Parking Ticket

Quoth the raven, “You owe $25.”

Ravens like to hang out in the parking lots of Yellowknife, in Canada’s Northwest Territories, perching on cars and foraging for snacks. Last Thursday, one of them made its opinions on government bureaucracy known: it took a parking ticket in its beak and shredded it.

Annemieke Mulders, a local raven fan, caught the event on video and shared it with the CBC. “I watched the little monster take the ticket from under the windshield wiper and shred it, and (I think) eat some of it,” she told the outlet.

In the end, it’s unclear whose side the raven is on—according to the Yellowknife director of public safety, the driver still has to pay the ticket.
