Watch this raven do what many of us secretly wish we could do when we get a parking ticket – shred it to pieces. This happened in Yellowknife, Northwest Canada, where ravens like to hang out in the parking lots just hanging out on cars and hoping for some snacks. The dramatic scene was filmed by Annemieke Mulders, a local raven enthusiast.

Ravens like to hang out in the parking lots of Yellowknife, in Canada’s Northwest Territories, perching on cars and foraging for snacks. “I watched the little monster take the ticket from under the windshield wiper and shred it, and (I think) eat some of it,” she told the CBC.

Unfortunately, according to the Yellowknife officers, the driver still has to pay the ticket. “We haven’t heard ‘the dog or raven ate my parking ticket’ excuse,” said Dennis Marchiori, the city’s director of public safety.

Nice try though, raven. Nice try.
