UNUSUAL – It’s a free crow. For several months, regulars at the Ménilmontant metro station located in the 20th arrondissement of Paris have been worried regarding the fate of a crow stuck in the station. Evening and morning, she continued flights from one end of the platform to the other between two trains, to the point that users and environmental associations called on the RATP for emergency intervention. They finally managed to dislodge the bird, which was at the Rue Saint-Maur station, this Friday, February 9.

The animal had taken up residence in the Ménilmontant metro entrance in November, and had not found the exit. He had even learned to avoid subways, by perching high up, for example on the light rails above the platforms, when a train was arriving. Users had even started to feed the crow, they told the Parisian.

The Bird Protection League, but also the Animal League (LLDA), an association which fights once morest cruelty towards animals, took up the matter by relaying the concerns of Internet users on X. “A crow has been stuck for more than a week in the Ménilmontant underground station. What are you waiting for to save this bird before it dies of hunger, thirst and exhaustion? »requested on December 21, the LLDA from the RATP.

Finally this Friday, Frédéric Jiguet, an expert from the Natural History Museum and specialist in corvids, went there and was able to catch the corvid. In December the ornithologist said he planned to use “a 2 x 2 m net which is projected using a compressed air mechanism” and asked that the intervention take place without an audience, “ in order to avoid any panic ».

In a press release, the expert was delighted with the success of his mission. “ I was able to capture the bird with the support of the RATP, band it (red ring bearing the code 150), and release it at the end of the night near the crow roost in the Père Lachaise cemetery. Long live the free crows! “, he wrote.
