Crow death creepy

In what may be the creepiest science experiment ever, researchers donned latex masks to find out why crows gather around their dead. The reason for the masks is because crows never forget a face, and the scientists involved weren't keen on getting harassed by angry corvids. Not only did the researchers scare the bejeesus out of a local man walking his dog, but they discovered that crows not only know what death is, but they fear (respect?) it. The evidence keeps stacking up for the remarkable intelligence of this much misunderstood and maligned bird. In fact, crows are as smart as a 7-year-old human child.
