Card stealing crow goes viral in Japan



A video showing a crow stealing a passenger's prepaid transportation card at a Tokyo's train station has gained nearly 3 million views on Twitter since the video was posted last week.

In the video posted by Twitter user @kinoshi42155049 on May 1, the crow appeared to steal a woman's card, which had been ejected from a ticket machine, presumably after having been recharged.

Media reports on the crow showed that previous stolen cards were often placed on the roofs of taxis or bus stations nearby.

But those may be the last sightings of the crow: media reports say it has since been captured by a local resident who lives nearby the station.
