Crow joke

Well, it is not a pretty story.... about 200 dead crows near Worcester, Mass and there was concern for Avian Flu.  They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the
crows, and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's relief. However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact
with trucks, and only 2% were killed by car impact. The city then hired a Ornithological Behaviourist to determine the disproportionate percentages for truck versus car kill.
The Ornithological Behaviourist determined the cause in short order. When crows eat road kill, they always post a "look-out Crow" in a nearby tree, to warn of impending danger.
His conclusion was that the lookout crow could say "Cah", but he could not say "Truck."
