Parrot ‘arrested for swearing at 85-year-old woman’ in India

A parrot has been detained by police in India after an elderly woman filed a complaint against it for making abusive comments.

The parrot, named as Hariyal, was reportedly trained for two years by its owner, Suresh Sakharkar, to abuse his stepmother, Janabai.

The bird apparently insulted Janabai every time she walked past Sakharkar’s home in Rajura, Maharashtra.

    Maybe she deserved it… we don’t know. The owner of the parrot seems to be the real culprit. It’s just parroting what it heard.

      Did the police read the parrot his rights?

      • lolwut?

        They gave it a cracker and said it was free to go.

      • SQUAWK!

        I have the right to remain silent- to remain silent- to remain silent….

  • lolwut?

    lol, friends and I did this to a woman we didn’t like who owned a parrot
    taught it all kinds of things to whistle songs she hated.

    I rememeber a pet store near a school where the owner was always kicking out kids trying to teach the birds to swear.

    good times.

  • It’s high time those parrots learned some damn manners.
