Two Crows Mark Up a Road as They Fight over a Bag of Flour

What white powder caused these lines? Firefighters in Edmonds, Washington didn't take any chances and sent in a hazardous materials handling team:
"It turns out the white powdery substance is, in fact, flour," Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman Leslie Hynes said.

A witness told firefighters that a couple of crows were to blame.

The woman was going out for a jog when she noticed the black birds dragging around the bag of white flour.

"She took it away from them, put it in a garbage can and kept running," Hynes said. "Two crows and a two-alarm hazmat incident."

My favorite 'white powder' incident summed it up years ago for me. ~A security guard on-site at the mail sorting warehouse tasted it and determined it was simply powdered sugar that had leaked from a poorly wrapped box of donuts.~
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
