I want to kill a crow

A crow has picked my small chick so,I just pointed a toy gun at him and he just left chick from a height and flew away.Next day,I was just going to the near shop suddenly that crow hit his beak on my head and he kept following me until I get back to my home.I was running like a sniper is aiming me but who knows that I am just protecting me from a mad crow.I am afraid of him that I can't even go in my garden.

NOTE: I dont have a gun and I can't buy a gun.No lectures,just tell me to kill him without a gun and no giant toy ideas

There was a program on TV about the intelligence of crows. Using face masks, one "face" would walk along, not threatening the crows in any way. A different "face" would do something scary/mean and the next time that one walked by, the crows would send the alarm call. They do have incredible memories and can tell us apart.

This crow seems to be quite upset that you disrupted his meal. S/he may have babies to feed and is now defending its territory as well as food. They can get quite aggressive during breeding season.

Wearing a hat when you go out into that area will protect you. They tend to swoop by and intimidate but not do much real harm. They just want you to go away.

I can't think of a safe/legal way for you to kill the bird. If you try poison, some other animal may pick it up and die. Then you're in trouble. In time the crow will get over it, move on with the group and not pester you any more.
