You can’t make this stuff up…
The OPP were forced to respond to a “domestic dispute” in Brighton, which is between Toronto and Kingston. Neighbours reported shouting and some disturbing noises around 8pm, on Tuesday. While neighbours had said that a couple is usually in the home, police were only able to find one man…and his parrot.
Northumberland OPP Constable Steve Bates was one of the officers who reported to this bizarre call. “They heard him yelling and saying, ‘I hope you die,’ and so on and so forth,” Bates said. “So we attended and we located the male of the household alone in the house screaming at his pet parrot who apparently was ‘beaking off’ at him, in his words.”
According to Bates, these calls come in all of the time, and bring some levity to the job. No charges were laid against the man, but lets hope he learned his lesson about ruffling feathers.
