When a Foul Mouthed Parrot Cursed The Firefighter Who Tried To Rescue Him

  • It all started when Jessie, the Macaw parrot, had escaped its home in Edmonton, UK, and spent three days sitting on a neighbors roof.

    With Jessie's owner and the RSPCA unsuccessful in their attempts to lure the parrot down, the Brigade was called: "Jessie had been on the same roof for three days and there were concerns that she may be injured which is why she hadn't come down.Our crew manager was the willing volunteer who went up the ladder to try and bring Jessie down".

  • The firefighters were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her ‘I love you’, which is exactly what they did. But none of them expected this reaction in return.

    While Jessie responded 'I love you' back, they then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to everyone's amusement. Jessie also speaks Turkish and Greek, so they tried telling her to 'come' in both those languages too.

  • Thankfully, it soon became apparent that Jessie was fine and uninjured as she flew off to another roof and then to a tree

  • However, there was a happy ending, as Jessie flew home, with the parrot's owner sending a message from Jessie.
