Parrots are known to be very impressionable and there are some who use this talent to their benefit, especially, these drug dealers!
A parrot was arrested as of late after almost ruining a drug raid while looking out for two crack-dealing suspects by constantly shouting, "Mamãe, polícia!" as indicated by Brazilian police in the territory of Piauí. The expression signifies, "Mom, police!"
Police confronted the anonymous parrot at the home of the two alleged crack cocaine dealers, roosted inside a small brick one-story home with a windowless exterior, Brazil's R7 news channel announced. As police looked for the suspects, it appeared the lime-green creature knew precisely what to do.
"He must have been trained for this," one officer engaged with the task said of the parrot's endeavor to meddle with law authorization, the Guardian detailed. "As soon as the police got close he started shouting," The feathered creature's endeavors were not effective, nonetheless.
Footage of the raid's repercussions aired by R7 indicates police classifying little sacks of crack while the parrot sits loyally on a ledge beside a race car helmet and a glass bottle. His apparent owners, a man, and a teenage girl were captured, local paper Meio Norte revealed.
An officer then transported the 'Papagaio do tráfico' — or "trafficking parrot," as news outlets alluded to the bird — out of the house at the tip of his finger, before setting him in a cage and bringing him into the Teresina Police Department.
The parrot did not let out the slightest peep, staying in complete silence even as law authorization tried to loosen it up. This caused the couple's defense lawyer, Salma Barros, to question the police's version of the story.
She addressed in a meeting with Meio Norte regarding how a bird blamed for noisily tipping off law authorization for drug dealers could remain thoroughly calm in the police headquarters. Others were worried that the flying creature was taken in police custody in the first place.
An environmentalist named Jaqueline Lustosa told Meio Norte that she had gone to the police station in an endeavor to free the bird. As of Wednesday, GloboNews, one of Brazil's biggest cable news outlets, detailed that the parrot had been taken to a neighborhood zoo, where zookeepers would train it how to fly. The pet's obstinate quietness proceeded even there, a veterinarian said.
"Lots of police officers have come by,” veterinarian Alexandre Clark said Wednesday, according to the Guardian, "and he’s said nothing," This isn't the first run through a parrot has been blamed for supporting drug dealing suspects. Back in 2010, a parrot named Lorenzo went viral after police recorded him warning his owners "Run! Run!" in Spanish.
