Parrot seized after alerting drug traffickers of police presence

News

Parrots are really smart! So smart in fact you can teach it new tricks, teach it to talk in different languages, and some can even sing. 

It also can apparently be a police lookout!

Police in Brazil say a parrot was standing guard, at a drug trafficker’s house! And they say, the bird sounded a warning to its owner, as they closed in.

But the parrot wasn’t enough.

The owner was arrested for drug trafficking and the bird is now being cared for by environmental officers.

No word yet if the parrot has told the police any details.
