Caring Helen Motteram took the injured bird in after realising it wasn't able to fly and wouldn't survive in the wild.

The rook is now part of the family but Helen admits he is ''needy'' and has ''separation issues'' - and wants attention all the time.

It steals her phone charger, pens, credit cards from her purse, jewellery and also rips up her daily newspaper and pecks pictures off the wall. But he's also very loving. Find out more in the video above.
