A feast of crows.

A feast of crows.

This is more depressing than creepy...

A feast "for" crows

Amazing picture though. Which how I find myself up voting stuff from this sub even when it doesn't necessarily fit.

/sub/creepy is so damn tame.

this should be over in /sub/art.

This is one of the saddest dang things I have ever seen. Poor lamb! Poor ewe!

Her dearest had been cold of late

Now going on three days

She wondered why it mewled little now

and would not move from where it lay

She nudged and tugged and struggled

and stared, helpless at the cloud

They approached against the duller sky

with a cacophony so loud

Beating wings and hungry beaks

empty, abyssal eyes

Her cries of desperate protest

Drowned out by haunting cries

She bellowed a great mourning

That they did not care to know

Her dearest was that no longer

But alas, a feast of crows

I'm breaking up with /sub/creepy.


Seriously. It's not like that sad ass sheep is gunna munch all those birds then be like, "Damn, that feast of crows was good but my kid's still dead".

So a feast for crows

I always thought it was a murder of crows?


I like being the one that raises and ultimately kills my food. Any animal I've raised and eaten has lived a pretty great life compared to a large company farm animal. Plenty of space and food, lots of company from other animals. I can also make sure they're killed painlessly and most of the body is used.

baby crows need to eat too you heartless bastard.

Does this comment chain need to happen under literally every single creepy post? We get it, you are super tough and jaded and nothing is creepy except pictures of real rotting dead baby corpses.

Yeah it was. Most art doesn't evoke emotion like that.

Initially thought it was. Great painting. I find it sorrowful and a little uneasy. I'd say its subtly creepy with all the crows just watching and surrounding the sheep, but it definitely belongs in a different sub.

I grew up raising goats (only ever had one sheep), and needless to say not all kids make it. It's heartbreaking to see the doe running around, calling for her lost little one.

I have nothing but respect for that my man.

...holy shit, did this bot just comfort me after I expressed sadness?

This entire subreddit is more depressing than creepy.

I'm sad about all of them!

This isn't creepy, it's just fucking sad.

This piece speaks to me

This is beautiful. Please keep writing.

Its a murder of crows preparing to feast on that lamb.

That's the plot twist! These sheep are both long-conning the crows into a free meal.

All Sheep Must Die

Aww, there there! :)

Thanks bud

Those are jackdaws.

thanks a tonne dude :) I for sure plan to

I bet. Sometimes I worry I have too much compassion for animals. If I had to be the one to kill the animals I eat I'd probably feel terrible for a long time before I got used to it.

Here's the thing. You said a "jackdaw is a crow." Is it in the same family? Yes. No one's arguing that. As someone who is a scientist who studies crows, I am telling you, specifically, in science, no one calls jackdaws crows. If you want to be "specific" like you said, then you shouldn't either. They're not the same thing. If you're saying "crow family" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of Corvidae, which includes things from nutcrackers to blue jays to ravens. So your reasoning for calling a jackdaw a crow is because random people "call the black ones crows?" Let's get grackles and blackbirds in there, then, too. Also, calling someone a human or an ape? It's not one or the other, that's not how taxonomy works. They're both. A jackdaw is a jackdaw and a member of the crow family. But that's not what you said. You said a jackdaw is a crow, which is not true unless you're okay with calling all members of the crow family crows, which means you'd call blue jays, ravens, and other birds crows, too. Which you said you don't. It's okay to just admit you're wrong, you know?

who's the artist?

A murder of crows


stop making me feel things you monster.

If I had to be the one to kill the animals I eat I'd probably feel terrible

Big part of why I stopped eating them

I'm sorry about your sheep.
