Cape Town - An Eastern Cape man has snapped a picture of his pet crow's cheeky grin after the bird stole his owner's false teeth.

Netwerk24 reported on Wednesday that Chris

Pretorius, who rescues and rehabilitates injured animals on his farm outside Grahamstown, was busy cleaning his dentures in his bathroom on Monday morning when his phone rang.

He rushed into his bedroom to answer the call, and later found Blackie, his tame crow, in the lounge smiling at him with his own teeth.

Blackie was brought to Pretorius in December after he almost died from heat exhaustion. He has now made himself at home, and cannot leave anything alone, Pretorius said.

Blackie did not want to hand over the teeth, and Pretorius could only retrieve them when Blackie hid under a cushion.

Pretorius said crows are known for being highly intelligent, and for stealing items for their nests.

A smile can brighten anyone's day, even if it comes from an unexpected source, Netwerk24 reported.
