German Police Being Torn Apart By Large Birds

 

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.

i dont think they class emu's as parrots

They don't, most birds including emus have three claws forward and one back but parrots have two forward and two back. The story makes reference to two seperate incidents - one involving an emu two weeks ago and one involving a parrot in the last couple of days. Sorry if that was unclear
