She murders her husband but then gets reported… by her parrot (VIDEO)

It's won't be a shock to anyone that parrots are exceptionally good at imitating us humans. Most of the time, their imitation skills are down to fantastic hearing and are a great party trick, but they can get you into trouble. This FML (which was really deserved) is entered into evidence.

This story, first reported by Associated Press, initially left Michigan police scratching their heads. It all began in May 2015 when Glenna Duram and Martin Duram, a couple who had been married for eleven years, were found slumped on their bedroom floor. The 46-year-old man had been shot five times, whilst Glenna escaped with a only headwound. Everything pointed towards a clear-cut case of the couple being victims of a violent attack…

"Don't ****ing shoot!"

All could've been laid to rest if a third party hadn't also been present at the time. Bud, the couple's parrot, gave testimony in his own way, repeating "Don't shoot, don't ****ing shoot!" in front of the victim's nearest and dearest. Deeply disturbed by the scene he'd been an unfortunate witness, the bird didn't stop repeating the same sentence over and over again, to the point where he was filmed by Martin's parents. Another small detail: Bud's voice is uncannily similar to their deceased son's voice. Enough to arouse suspicion.


Stunned, Glenna is still claiming to be innocent, despite the jury's verdict, given after an 8-hour deliberation. A psychologist, a specials in animal behaviour, testified as a police witness. According to her, there's no doubt: the parrot is imitating a real fight between a couple. Faced with the evidence given by Bud, she was rightly convicted.

Glenna Duram is facing life in prison due to her parrot's testimony. The verdict will be set on the 28th of August. Think twice before adopting a parrot, people.

Maybe I am missing something, but all the parrot is proving is that the man said those words. It isn't saying "Don't shoot me Glenna". He was obviously saying that to the person with a gun, but he doesn't give a name. It could have been her, could have been a stranger, could have been anyone. I don't see why they were sure it was her he was speaking to. Must be more to the story.
