Police in Brazil seize ‘super obedient’ lookout parrot trained by drug dealers to alert them
The Guardian – A parrot has been taken into custody in Brazil following a police raid targeting crack dealers.
The parrot, who has not been named, was seized this week when officers swooped on a drug den run by a local couple.
One officer involved in the operation said of the two-winged wrongdoer:
“He must have been trained for this. As soon as the police got close he started shouting.”
A Brazilian journalist who came face to face with the imprisoned parrot on Tuesday described it as a “super obedient” creature – albeit one that had kept its beak firmly shut after being “arrested”.
“So far it hasn’t made a sound … completely silent,” the reporter said.
