I have heard that crow's & raven's are some of the most intelligent of all creatures.
Here is an excerpt from this mornings avalanche report:
My partner and I stumbled onto another avalanche in Scotts Bowl along the Park City ridgeline that looks like it was triggered this past Sunday or Monday by a snowshoe rabbit making it a “hare trigger”. His tracks led into the 8 inch deep and 30 foot wide fracture indicating he may have gone for the 400 foot ride to the bottom of the bowl. It’s speculated that he was a very experienced backcountry traveler. He either disregarded or was not aware of an adjacent avalanche that was still visible from last week. It appears he underestimated the slope angle or the weak layer or both. We believe he entered the starting zone without doing any stability tests. It’s unknown whether he consulted the avalanche advisory that morning. We know he was not wearing the proper rescue gear so finding the body will be difficult but, often in these cases, coyotes (who are untrained but very efficient in body recovery) will perform a search of the debris pile and locate the victim.
