    Cops kick in door after hearing cries for help

    NJ cops kick in door over bird's cries for help Fri Sep 5, 7:58 PM ET



    Cries for help inside a Trenton, N.J., home turned out to be for the birds. Neighbors called police Wednesday morning after hearing a woman's persistent cry of "Help me! Help me!" coming from a house. Officers arrived and when no one answered the door, they kicked it in to make a rescue.

    But instead of a damsel in distress, officers found a caged cockatoo with a convincing call.

    It wasn't the first time the 10-year-old bird named Luna said something that brought authorities to the home of owner Evelyn DeLeon.

    About seven years ago, the bird cried like a baby for hours, leading to reports of a possible abandoned baby and a visit to the home by state child welfare workers. But it was only Luna practicing a newfound sound, DeLeon says.

    DeLeon says her bird learns much of her ever-growing vocabulary from watching television, in both English and Spanish.

    Some should write the owner and ask if one of those birds taste like chicken

    I'd hate to hear what the bird learned from the cops as they broke in...

    LOL! Next thing the cockatoo needs to learn is "don't shoot!"
    My macaw says a lot of things including bad words, imitates coughing,crying and dog barking also. Duke loves watching TV, cartoons especially.

    Nice bird RamRod!!!
    I had a friend in Denver PD that rescued one from a home that was ripe with domestic abuse. When he brought it home it had pulled all it's feathers out, even the ones on top of it's head!! It was one funny looking parrot for awhile, but once it grew comfortable in it's new surroundings, it grew them back and was a beautiful bird. I guess they are kinda sensitive about some things, it had quite an attitude though, IIRC he named it Mr Nasty.

    He's only five years old. The original owner hand raised him and I got him at a year old. Yes, he'll probably outlive me, and more than likely the old lady will outlive me too. This way, she'll still have something to bug her for a while longer.

    Thanks. Once a bird has pulled out most of it's feathers, they are usually on the downhill slide and on the verge of going psycho and subsequent death. Lucky rescue for the bird and good for it's recovery. It likely developed a quick bond with it's new owner as that's who essentially saved it's life. The more intelligent a bird, the harder for them to overcome or deal with neglect. The largest of the cockatoos demand almost constant attention much like a new born baby. That's pretty much what they are for the first ten years at least.

    That's a cool story, and one pretty bird, also reminds me of one of the funniest jokes about birds I ever heard. The Names have been changed to poke our friend in the ribs.

    Ram Rod received a parrot for his birthday.

    The parrot was fully-grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren't expletives were, to say the least very rude.

    Ram Rod tried hard to change the bird's attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything he could think of to try and set a good example. Nothing worked.

    He yelled at the bird and the bird yelled back. He shook the bird and the bird just got angrier and became even more rude. Finally in a moment of desperation. Ram Rod put the parrot in the FREEZER.

    For a few moments he heard the bird squawk and kick and scream. Then suddenly, there was a quiet-----

    -Not a sound for half a minute. Rad Rod was frightened that he might have hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door.

    The Parrot calmly stepped out onto Ram Rod's extended arm and said: "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I will endeavor at once to correct my behavior. I really am truly sorry and beg your forgiveness."

    Ram Rod was astonished at the bird's change in attitude and was about to ask what had made the difference and caused such a dramatic change when the parrot continued: "May I ask what the chicken did???"
    Sorry man, I couldn't resist.
