Yes, Canuck the Crow is dazed, but OK, after being knocked unconscious by a lineman wielding a flag at a soccer game on Saturday.

The news spread quickly on Shawn Bergman's Canuck and I Facebook page which chronicles the trickster crow's mischievous  exploits for their 40,000 followers.

Bergman, who befriended Canuck when the orphaned crow was found by his landlord's son, put out the alarm at about 7 o'clock on Saturday night.

'I need your help', said the visibly distraught Bergman in a live Canuck and I Facebook feed.  "Canuck's missing right now. I'm worried. This morning while visiting a soccer tournament at Adanac Park, Canuck was blindsided by a gentleman holding a lineman's flag. From what I was told by a witness he just walked by and cracked Canuck on the head with his flag."

The witness told Bergman that the blow rendered Canuck unconsious for 10 to 15 minutes. The witness had to temporarily leave the park, and upon returning, was told that Canuck had flown away. When Canuck didn't return home, Bergman asked his Facebook followers to help find him.

Canuck returned home about an hour later. On Sunday, Bergman reported that Canuck has made it through the night and seemed alert. He took Canuck to a vet that afternoon.

By Sunday morning the video had been viewed 26,000 times. Canuck's fans live as far away as the Netherlands, London England, Moncton, New Brunswick and Nome, Alaska.

Canuck has become so famous that a documentary film is being made about him.
