Josh Klein is an animal behavior researcher in New York. He is working towards changing people’s minds about crows. Instead of seeing them as a nuisance, he says they are a highly intelligent and trainable animal that we could benefit from.
How intelligent? He says they are smarter than chimpanzees and dolphins! Klein has created a Crow Box that dispenses peanuts when the crows deposit loose change found on the street into it. It’s estimated that at any given time there is $250 million in lost change lying around on city streets. Though, Klein has never revealed how much he’s made off of the trained crows, he is sharing his Crow Box idea.
