Some Costco customers in Alaska claimed that their groceries and some other essentials were stolen by ravens in the store parking lot. Matt Lewallen, a customer said, “I literally took 10 steps away and turned around, two ravens came down and instantly grabbed one out of the package, ripped it off and flew off with it.” “They know what they’re doing; it’s not their first time,” Lewallen said. “They’re very fat so I think they’ve got a whole system there.”
Some other people on social media also shared their stories where ravens stole something from them. “My parents were minding their business after a shop and made it home with one less steak!” Kimberly Waller wrote on Facebook. “The bird snatched it right out of the pack in the parking lot.”
“He was waiting for another opportunity to grab the melons off the cart, but they never were deterred,” she said. “They just stayed posted, waiting for their next opportunity to steal something out of my cart.” “They are very dedicated to their mission,” she added.
