Police in Brazil took a parrot into custody Monday after it alerted two alleged drug dealers to authorities’ presence, according to Reporters
As police prepared to raid a suspected drug den in the northern state of Piauí, the bird yelled
“Mamãe, polícia!,” Portuguese for “Mama, police!,” according to the report. “He must have been trained for this,” an officer involved in the operation told Brazilian broadcaster Globo. “As soon as the police got close he started shouting.”
Police have reportedly attempted without success to make the bird say other phrases.
“So far it hasn’t made a sound … completely silent,”
one journalist who encountered the parrot said, according to Reporters
The bird has been handed over to a local zoo, where it will be released after learning to fly, according to The Guardian, citing Globo.
