On Dec. 29, 2019, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office in Florida received a distressing 911 call. Reports of a woman screaming for help had deputies rush to the scene — only to find the cries were actually coming from a parrot named Rambo.
The homeowner was changing the brakes on his car, according to NBC News affiliate WPTV , when the deputies arrived and notified him that his neighbor had called to report that there was a woman screaming inside asking for help and to be let out.
The owner then introduced Rambo to the officers.
“I was changing the brakes on my wife’s car and had my 40-year-old parrot, Rambo, on his outside perch where he sings and talks,” the man explained to the deputies, according to a post on the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page .
“Sometime later four police officers showed up saying a neighbor called because she heard a woman screaming for help,” the unidentified man explained.
“I promptly introduced the officers to Rambo and we all had a good laugh,” the man added.
“Afterward, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbor who called in the screaming.”
Law enforcement officials were surely relieved to find nothing but a comedy of errors on their hands rather than a serious situation. Rambo’s owner explained that she “had a good laugh” about the whole ordeal and that his pet has been screaming bloody murder for decades.
