Montreal-area zoo urging those who took raven to return him


MONTREAL — Officials at Montreal’s Ecomuseum Zoo want their stolen raven returned. There’s still no sign of Kola, a common raven, who was taken during a break-in sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning. Executive director David Rodrigue said one or more people broke into the zoo from the rear of the property and cut open a hole in his aviary, either to take him or to allow the bird to flee. Rodrigue says no other creature was taken or harmed in the break-in.

He says Kola, who arrived from a sanctuary four years ago, requires medication and specialize­d food preparatio­n, doesn’t fly well and is unlikely to survive without proper care.

The zoo, a refuge for animals that can no longer live in the wild, is asking anyone who has Kola to return him — no questions asked.
