Gifted parrot triggers firefighters' intervention by imitating fire alarm
At 3:45 pm Wednesday, November 14, firefighters from Daventry, Northamptonshire, England, intervened at Steve Dockentry, 63 years, after one of his neighbors has heard his fire alarm ring at least three times. For the moment, nothing very funny. Except that once entered the firefighters couldn’t find anything abnormal. Even more crazy, they continue to hear the noise elsewhere in the housing. By following it, they end up falling on its real origin: one of the two retired man’s parrots.
Gifted impersonator, this animal named Jazz has indeed developed a special talent for the imitation of electronic sounds. In fact, this Gray of Gabon is so talented that he even deceived the company in charge of the surveillance of the fire alarms when this one contacted Steve Dockentry by telephone to check that all was well. Also hearing the noise behind him, she triggered the firefighters' intervention.
On the spot, they were understanding and left smiling. And for good reason: they very regularly have to deal with strange animals. For example, last August, a blue-haired Macaw has insulted Edmonton firefighters, still in England, who came to rescue him. Yes, nature is beautiful.
And you, has an animal ever hit you backwards? Or even a plant, actually. Or a stone. But be careful, if you stumble over one or take one in the face it is absolutely not valid unless it jumped at you or threw itself under your feet.
