It is related by Saint Gregory the Great (+603) that in the wilderness Benedict fed a raven with some of a portion of his bread. When a jealous and wicked priest tried to kill Benedict with poisoned bread, Benedict coached the raven to take the deadly bread to a place where it couldn't harm another. The raven complied.
