Court rules that crow can live with the man who rescued him from a broken wing 7 years ago

Other crows might prefer murders, but a Quebec court has ruled that Moko's a one-man bird.
That man, Simon Pérusse, was in court Thursday to argue against a $650 fine for keeping the wild bird in captivity, which is against the law in Quebec.
Pérusse found Moko with a broken wing seven years ago and he says the bird now can't stand to be away from him for long.
"I leave for a month and he gets bored and tears all his feathers out. Once a bird is connected to a human like that, the bird can't handle being separated from them," Pérusse explained.
Moko often accompanies Pérusse to his job as a tour guide at the Huron village in nearby Wendake.

Pérusse was fined after he moved into an apartment building and the landlord filed a complaint with Quebec's Ministry of Natural Resources and Wildlife.
Pérusse then began lobbying for a special permit.
Thursday's ruling cancelled the fine and let Pérusse keep Moko as a pet. 
The court's decision marks the second time in recent months that officials in Quebec have allowed a wild animal to stay with its adopted human family.
