Parrot Confounds German Police by Sounding Like an Abandoned Child
Police forced their way into an apartment in Germany after hearing what they described as a “child-like voice” calling for its mother and father. Instead of an abandoned toddler, they found a cheerful and very talkative parrot.
The woman who called the police on Tuesday morning sounded worried. She said she had been trying for several days to speak to a neighbor but no one had answered the door when she knocked, even though she could hear children’s voices inside.
Police dispatched to the flat in the western German town of Ibbenbüren heard a distinct child-like voice calling “Mama,” “Papa” and “Mama Come.”
