Neighbour mistakes talking parrot for a woman screaming for help

Police officers in Florida arrived at a home to investigate reports of a woman screaming - only to find the neighbour had mistaken the noise for a parrot talking.

The pet's owner said: "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.

"Sometime later, four police officers showed up saying a neighbour called because she heard a woman screaming for help.

"I promptly introduced the officers to Rambo and we all had a good laugh.

"Afterwards, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbour who called the police. 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."
