Deputies in Florida received a surprise after responding to a report of a woman screaming for help only to find the culprit was a parrot.
Officers from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrived at a home in Lake Worth Beach on Dec. 29 and found a man working on a car in a driveway.
“Hilarity ensued,” the sheriff’s office said on Facebook.
After learning why the four officers were there, the man promptly went into his backyard and retrieved his pet bird Rambo, a 40-year-old parrot with a penchant for mimicry.
“I’ll bring the screamer to ya,” he said.
“Rambo, meet the boys in green,” the bird’s owner told the officers.
“I promptly introduced the officers to Rambo and we all had a good laugh,” the man said, according to the sheriff’s office Facebook post. “Afterward, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbor who called in the screaming. She too had a good laugh.”
“Sometimes Rambo yells ‘help, help, let me out’. Something I taught him when I was a kid and Rambo lived in a cage.”
