Cloverdale firefighters free crow from precarious perch

Crow flies off unharmed after some help from Cloverdale’s Fire Hall No. 8

A team of Cloverdale firefighters went above and beyond on Thursday when they freed a feathered friend from a tight spot.

After a crow became caught in a lamp post at Brick Yard Station, just off the intersection of Highway 10 and Highway 15 in downtown Cloverdale, a crew from the nearby Fire Hall No. 8 came to the rescue.

The Surrey Fire Fighters Association posted a video to their Facebook page, captured by local freelance photographer Mike Mac, that shows “Captain Bruce” scaling a ladder and freeing the bird — who flies away, seemingly unscathed.
