An ill-behaved pet parrot named Rambo recently prompted a neighbor to call the emergency services.
The troublesome bird became the subject of a police investigation earlier this month after it kept screaming "Let me out! Let me out! Ohhh! Ohhh! Ohhh!" while outside with its owner.
It wasn't long before four officers from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrived on the scene.
It turned out that a neighbor had heard the parrot and was concerned that someone was in trouble.
"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 parrot's owner stated.
"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."
"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."
Footage of the incident can be viewed below.
