LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. — It wasn’t a stool pigeon. Just a well-trained parrot.
Deputies in Florida responded Dec. 29 to a report of a woman screaming for help at a Lake Worth Beach residence. What they found was a chirpy parrot named Rambo, WPTV reported.
The parrot’s owner was in his driveway, fixing the brakes on his wife’s car when police arrived, WPTV reported.
According to a YouTube video description, the man said he taught Rambo to yell “help, help, let me out” when he was younger and the parrot lived in a cage.
“I had my 40-year-old parrot, Rambo, on his outside perch where he sings and talks,” the Sheriff’s Office quoted the man on its Facebook page. “Sometime later four police officers showed up saying a neighbor called because she heard a woman screaming for help. I promptly introduced the officers to Rambo and we all had a good laugh."
The video shows the man bringing Rambo to the driveway, and the deputies chuckle and leave.
“Afterward, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbor who called in the screaming,” the man was quoted as saying in the Facebook post.
