    I was headed to work and saw a crow hanging upside down from a chain link fence. There was another crow with it, looking down at it. I couldn't stop, so had to continue driving.

    I contacted the Humane Society to let them know (via email, since they don't take phone calls until 9:30a). I'm going to go check on it when I get back home tonight, which won't be until around 6:30. I'm very sad for this poor creature.

    You have such a good heart. Hopefully it freed itself or someone that was on a schedule had the heart to stop.

    It's only 10a where I am. I won't get off work until 5 (though I'm considering asking for a half day off).

    The Humane Society emailed me & said b/c it's not a cat or dog, they can't help. They referred me to places that are at least 70 miles away from where the crow may or may not be.

    Crows are very intelligent birds. I admire them. I hope you can find it and save it!
