Lorenzo the parrot has become the latest of over 1700 seized by officials having been trained as drug cartel lookouts.
At an undercover raid last week Lorenzo was arrested by officers after shouting "run, run you are going to get caught" for most of the morning. Drug traffickers have been training the birds to keep a look out and warn them if they've been rumbled.
"According to environmental authorities, Lorenzo the parrot was trying to tip-off a local drug cartel when officers conducted an undercover raid early Wednesday."
