This parrot is no stool pigeon.
Police in northern Brazil have taken a parrot into custody whom they believe was warning crack dealers of impending raids, according to the Guardian, which cited reports in the Brazilian press.
The bird would shout “Mum, the police!” when cops got near, the report claimed.
The parrot was pinched during a Monday raid on a small drug den in Vila Irma Dulce, Brazil. A local couple was said to be running that business.
“He must be trained for this,” an officer surmised.
