Actually I believe it to have been established that Crows (as in Corvus orru & C. bennetti) have never been noted to kill lambs (or sheep). However Australian Ravens (C. coronoides) do. I don't know about the other 2 Raven species in Aus. I hope my information is current.

I remember in my childhood, a long time ago, that crow traps were used to catch crows that were killing lambs. The traps were about 3-4 metres cubed with a funnel in the top. Crows will be crows......
