Kicker – Parrot rescue

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Someone out for a walk in his neighborhood in Florida got a shock: he heard chilling cries coming from inside a house.

And when the voice cried “Let me out!” he immediately dialed 911. 

A short time later, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies pulled up to find the owner of the house in the driveway tinkering with his car. 

The deputies told him their concerns. The man smiled and said hang on, he’d show them the source of the noise. 

He stepped into the house and came back with  Rambo. A 40-year old parrot.

The owner said he taught Rambo to say “Let me out!” decades ago,  when he was still a child, to annoy his parents!

Officers let the neighbor who’d made the report know the true story.  They all had a good laugh. All’s well that ends well.
