Two weeks ago in the western town of Kaarst an officer had his trousers shredded while attempting to apprehend a runaway emu. Now another officer has had his leather jacket destroyed while attempting to catch a 90 centimeter parrot.
Police in Walldürn, a town in southwestern Germany, were informed by passers by that a large, colourful bird was sitting in a tree. One of the responding officers grabbed the bird. The bird responded by screeching and attacking the officer's jacket.
The officers calmed the bird down and the police put it in the car before the police radio triggered another outburst from the parrot. While the bird has certainly chosen not to remain silent police are unsure if they can make it talk.
