A parrot that warned two alleged drug dealers in Brazil that Police were coming was taken into custody after it almost foiled the undercover drug raid, authorities said.
When the parrot spotted officers last Tuesday at its owners’ Teresina, Brazil, home, it squawked “Mama, Police!” in Portuguese, E-Daily has said, quoting a Brazilian media Oliberal.
Despite the bird’s efforts to tip off its owners, a man and a woman were arrested, reports say.
Drugs, including crack and marijuana, were reportedly found at the property, as well as large amounts of money.
Police said since its arrest, the parrot has refused to talk.
Authorities believe the parrot was trained to spot Police cars.
Meanwhile, the bird is being kept at a zoo in Teresina, a city in northeastern Brazil, report says.
