Parrot Detained After Alerting Owners To Police Drug Raid

Washington Examiner

[Too short to excerpt]

A green parrot was taken into police custody after trying to stop a drug raid, repeatedly shouting, “Mama, police!” in Brazilian as officers closed in on the home of two alleged crack dealers.

The lookout parrot was apparently in situ to alert its owners to the presence of law enforcement and attempted to compromise the raid, which took place in northern Brazil.

“He must have been trained for this,” an officer involved in the operation said, according to the Guardian. “As soon as the police got close he started shouting.”

The warning was unsuccessful, and the bird’s two owners were taken into custody, along with bags of crack cocaine seized from the residence. Also seized from the residence was the parrot, which kept quiet after it was placed in a cage, carried out, and taken to the police department.

Salma Barros, the arrested couple’s defense attorney, has cited the parrot's silence in raising questions about the police version of the arrests, wondering how a bird that so vocally tipped off its owners to a drug raid could remain quiet while in police custody.

The parrot was later sent to a zoo, where it has failed to utter a word or even a squawk. “Lots of police officers have come by and he’s said nothing,” said veterinarian Alexandre Clark.

I take it Salma and Alexandre don't spend much time around parrots. Well I have. They'll talk for some people, people they recognize. Many of them won't talk to people they don't recognize. I thought everybody knew that.

My daughter's friend had a parrot that could mimic the ring of the telephone PERFECTLY! It used to drive everyone in the family nuts.

Pet bird for a while. Fell out of the nest in our roof. Took care of it, named him "Robert the Byrd" just because. Nursed it back to health and then flew off. Which is as it should be.

EtA: Somewhere on YouTube there is is probably a video of me trying to teach "robert the byrd" how to fly as a fledgling. I wont post it. Instead there is...

They thought that once in police custody it would sing like a canary, but it ain't no stool pigeon.

One of my neighbors has two very rambunctious German Shepherds. They also have a number of birds including a large Grey Parrot(I think it's a Parrot). In talking to my neighbor he said when ever the one pooch is in the house and starts barking the bird tells him to shut up! Poor Dog gets very very confused each time.

A friend of mine had an African Gray that had learned to cry like his baby. I was on the phone to him one time, heard the kid crying and crying, said, hey, you need to go take care of that? He said nah, the wife was out with the kid, it's the G-Damned parrot. Drove him nuts.

Never, ever, ever teach a parrot to whistle. Trust me on this.

My sister-in-law worked with a woman, dumb as a rock but kind of hot, who married this guy and they had a parrot. She "met" the parrot once and the only thing it kept saying was "Shut the F*** Up!!!" Guess that's what the guy usually told his wife.
