  2. SUMMARY • When Crowbar Came • The Craig family often took in wild animals in need of help. Many of these animals became pets. One pet was a crow the Craigs named Crowbar. Crowbar ate with them at the table, walked with the kids to the bus stop, and even picked up coins from the schoolyard and deposited them in the gutter of the bank building. After a few years, however, Crowbar migrated with other crows and was never seen again.
