(Scroll down for video) A mischievous bird called Canuck the crow, swooped in on a crime scene and snatched away a knife that was used by a suspect who was shot and wounded by police, according to police in Canada.

Vancouver police said that Canuck the crow had several prior run ins with officers as it flew into a police car and stole a button on the keyboard of a computer.

The crow is very famous in the country, and it even has its own social media account with more than 12,000 fans on Facebook.

On Tuesday, police responded to the scene of a car fire outside a McDonald's, and were confronted a man holding a knife.

When he refused to drop the knife, he was shot and wounded.

The suspect was taken to a hospital, and the area was cordoned off by police for further investigation.

Suddenly, the crow descended on the crime scene and briefly snatched the knife. An officer chased the bird for several feet before the crow let go of the knife and it fell back to the ground.
