There are times when you need saving but you’re not really in the mood to be saved. This “potty-mouthed parrot”, stuck on a roof for three days said “f*ck off” to the firefighters who came to rescue her.
Jessie, a blue-colored macaw, escaped her owner’s house in Edmonton, London, and stranded herself on a neighbor’s roof for three days. In the concern that she was hurt, Jessie’s owner called the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) for help.
Unsuccessful, a team of firefighters was dispatched from the Green Watch team at the Edmonton fire station to rescue the parrot. The firefighters unexpectedly found it very difficult to negotiate with the parrot.
The team led by Chris Swallow arrived at Cuckoo Hall Lane and they were told by Jessie’s owner to “I love you” to try to bond with the bird. A firefighter climbed the roof to tell her that and that was when Jessie decided to exhibit her knowledge of profanity.
Swallow told Metro, “We then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement.”
Jessie and her owner spoke Turkish and Greek and so the firefighters tried saying “come” in both languages. But the bird held her ground and did not budge.
Eventually, the firefighters did rescue her. Not having suffered any injuries, she even flew to another neighboring roof and then to a tree where she finally reunited with her owner.
Now safely back at home, Jessie’s owner sent a video of Jessie thanking the firefighters to make up for her lack of courtesy.
