Charlie's celebrity home destiny
4:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
A PLUCKY crow is set for heady heights after a celeb couple offered to rehome her.
Charlie the crow has been at Wildlives animal rescue centre in Thorrington for three months after RSPCA officers were called to her aid.
The bird, a member of the corvid family, was said to have been chased down the road by a man with a spade in Walton.
It turned out Charlie was a tame crow that had probably been hand reared - but because of this she can never live in the wild.
Desperate to find Charlie a home, rescue centre owner Rosie Catford called Lloyd Buck, a specialist who trains birds for film and television.
“Then from that I had a call from tv presenter Philippa Forresta and her hsuband Charlie Hamilton-James, who were looking for a corvid for their family,” Rosie added.
“It is a very happy ending for Charlie.”
A new aviery has been ordered for Charlie at the family’s home near Bath.
They are then set to all undergo training with Lloyd Buck on how to interact together.
