(Via Protein Wisdom) Pound for pound, they’re some of the deadliest birds out there. Particularly if they’ve been bred and beaten to the Death Ring as these birds have been. It’s like Dobermans: they’re sweet, wonderful dogs, but you can brutalize them into being vicious killers. It’s the same with canaries, except that they’re easier to warp. You don’t hear about it, but large enough flocks have even been known to kill men; that’s why the traditional name for a group of canaries is a rabble.
Yes, of course I’m making all of that up (except for the bit about Dobermans). They’re canaries, for crying out loud. Sheesh.
