Olani Saunoa was finishing a shopping trip there last winter, buckling her baby in a car seat. That’s when a raven swooped in and swiped some short ribs from her cart.
“He had picked up the entire package of short ribs, like flying away with it,” Saunoa said.
The same thing happened this spring — only this time, it was more than one, and they chose a different cut of meat.
“I’ve been here my entire life, dealt with the ravens but never ever had this happen to me, ever,” Saunoa said. “The first time we thought, ‘Once in a lifetime kind of thing, this is never going to happen again.’ But sure enough a year later, same Costco. This year, it was a pack of pork ribs that they had gotten into.”
