Parrots are not just really clever birds, but they’re tricky as well. A man in Kuweit almost got arrested, after the family’s parrot accidentally exposed his alleged affair with the housemaid, Gulf News reported.
Apparently, the bird started to repeat flirty words in front of the family. And since the wife never heard that kind os sweet words from her husband’s mouth, her suspicions that her husband is having an affair were confirmed.
So, the unnamed woman went directly to the police station to report her unfaithful husband, with their parrot as a witness. And since having affairs is illegal in the Arabic world, the husband was risking some jail time.
However, according to the prosecution officer since the parrot could not be considered a credible witness. the evidences aren’t strong enough for the husband to be charged. He motivated his decision saying that the bird could have been heard the words on TV or radio.
But this isn’t the first time an African Grey parrot is exposing an affair. Years ago, another bird revealed to his owner, Chris Taylor, that his girlfriend, Suzy Collins, had been unfaithful, the New York Post reported. Only back then, the parrot clearly repeated the name of the partner. “I love you, Gary!” it said.
Unfortunately, the parrot doesn’t stopped in repeating that phrase, even after his owner broke up with the unfaithful girlfriend. “I love him to bits and I really miss having him around, but it was torture hearing him repeat that name over and over again.”
Anyway, no matter how many problems they may cause, one thing is certain: these birds are really clever!
