A man in central India says crows attack him when he leaves the house. He thinks it's related to an incident from years ago.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Shiva Kewat of central India has a problem. Every time he leaves his house, he is attacked by crows. He thought it over and remembered an incident three years ago when he tried to rescue a baby crow who was caught in a net but the chick died. Now he thinks the crows are taking revenge. That might sound nutty, but The Times of India interviewed a bird researcher who said crows do tend to target, quote, "those who have wronged them."
