The police in Brazil have taken into custody, a parrot, after the bird almost jeopardised a raid by the law officers by tipping off drug dealers to the presence of the police. The parrot was apparently an animal that played lookout for two crack-dealing suspects. When the police showed up, the bird squeaked “Mama, police!”, thereby alerting its masters to the law officers.

According to Brazilian police in the state of Piauí, they encountered the unnamed parrot at the home of the two alleged crack cocaine dealers, perched inside a small brick one-story home with a windowless facade. Brazil’s R7 news channel reported that as police searched for the suspects, it seemed the lime-green bird knew exactly what to do. An officer involved in the operation was quoted as saying: “He must have been trained for this. As soon as the police got close he started shouting.” The bird’s efforts were not successful, however.

Footage of the raid’s aftermath aired by R7 shows police cataloguing small bags of crack while the parrot sits obediently on a countertop next to a racecar helmet and a glass bottle. The bird’s apparent owners, a man and teenage girl, were arrested, local newspaper Meio Norte reported. The “trafficking parrot” was also seen as an officer carried him out of the house on his fingertip, before placing him in a cage and taking him into a police department. Internet users have called for the release of the bird and an environmentalist told Meio Norte that she had gone to the police department in attempt to free the bird. Hmm…This is interesting.
