The CSPCA believe the bird was protecting one of its babies who had fallen from a nest
A CROW who attacked a number of people at an Irish college was protecting one of its offspring, an animal charity has revealed.
The CSPCA were called to Cork Institute of Technology after the angry bird pounced on 20 students and staff in recent days – with some requiring medical attention.
Two of the bird’s victims were treated by the campus doctor, who gave them tetanus jabs and antibiotics.
One staff member said he was clawed in the head by the crow and suffered a number of scratch wounds.
Workers from the animal charity headed over to the campus yesterday afternoon.
And it appears the crow was minding a little jackdaw who had fallen from a nest on the campus.

The baby – who has been named Jack – was rescued and will be placed in foster care.
They wrote on Facebook: “Apologies for the name but what else would you call the bandit of CIT.
“This little guy and its parents have been causing quite a stir over the past day or so with reports of people being buzzed overhead on the campus of CIT.
“So to prevent panic and a mass evacuation of the city, we headed over to see what all the fuss was about.
“Jack had fallen from its nest by either being too adventurous or got pushed by fellow siblings, when on the ground its parents were continuing to feed but also defend and protect it from anything that gets too close including humans, they were doing exactly what any other parent, human or animal would do in the same circumstances.
“As the nest could not be located, Jack will now be fostered and will do quite well for itself and we are glad to report that calm has now been restored to our fair city.”
