ravens/crows

Does anyone here know if Ravens or Crows are legal in Canada and where one could be purchased. Any comments would be appreciated.

I am not sure about legalities here but my grandfather in California has a pet Raven who lives in his house. The bird washed up to his porch during a heavy rainfal as a tiny chick. He has had it ever since. It eats leftovers and other stuff. The one downfall is that the bird is EXTREMELY smart and that can become an issue.

It would rock to have a raven or crow for a pet. They're bright and somewhat trainable. They'll also steal from you like mad and get into things a child couldn't figure out

I have a friend how has a Crow as a pet. Wicked smart bird. Legal, well not really. He tried to deal with Fish & Game in Alberta on multiple occassions & they more or less told him to leave them alone as they couldn't be bothered with him or his bird as they were too busy with poachers to worry about the "legalities" of his pet. If they don't recv. an official complaint about him & the bird they don't want to see or hear about it. I love how our Govt. agencies choose to deal with borderline issues such as this. Ignore them & they might just go away LOL. He may have it at the spring TARAS show (has in past) but most likely not as it is a contraversial issue & it doesn't need to be debated at shows. Mark

That crow is cool - it's amazing how smart crows and magpies are.

Both are legal to keep as pets in Saskatchewan, without any kind of permit I beleive - and in the past there have been people around here who have taught them how to talk (after splitting their tounge, which is also a controversial issue among bird people)

Corvid are illegal to own in BC as they are considered wildlife. I've tried that before (corvid-ophile here). Might sound funny to you Manville but I'm looking into getting a common mynah! lol! Yea those pesky birds in Singapore!

Maybe this spring may prove fruitful and I may end up with a magpie or raven fledgling!

I would LOVE to have a Raven as a pet, those have to be my absolute favourite birds. Too bad that Invictus won't let me have one.

Splitting the tongue is not needed. It's more of a wives tale. There are plently of people with talking crows that have never split the tongue.

I wondered about the tongue thing. My grandfather told me that it was necessary, but I wasn't sure whether to believe him or not...

After all, when we were little as he drove us through the road into the nearby park, he'd tell us to whistle out the windows to call rabbits out.

Darn grandparents

How do you know about those mynahs from Singapore? Have you lived there before or are you from there?

Ya, and what is a large group of ravens/crows called? I am pretty sure it's called a Murder.


When we lived in New Hampshire and we would walk home at night. THOUSANDS (there had to be like 2-3 thousand) crows would follow us it was really creepy.

I had never seen that many before and when I looked at the trees I was wondering about the "strange black leaves" until one flew off, and the rest followed!

One night an owl attacked a raven. Bad move, the entire group went after the owl! But still, creepy enough, a few hundred stayed and followed us to our apartment building.

Very smart birds, just watch out and keep anything shiny away from them.

In Ontario, ravens require a permit, crows do not.
