LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. (Gray News) – Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies rushed to a home after a neighbor reported someone calling for help.
What they discovered instead was a man and his parrot.
"I was changing the brakes on my wife’s car and had my 40-year-old parrot, Rambo, on his outside perch where he sings and talks,” the bird’s owner said in a quote on the sheriff department’s 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.”
A video posted to YouTube shows the deputies paying a visit and meeting the chatty bird, who sometimes yells, “Help, help, let me out!”
The owner said he taught Rambo to say that when he was a kid and the parrot lived in a cage.
“Afterward, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbor who called in the screaming,” the owner said. “She too had a good laugh.”
