Parrot Detained By Police For Shouting Obscenities

Sun, Jan 24, 2016



The parrot’s name is “Hariyal,” and he was reportedly trained for two years in the finer points of obscenity by his owner, Suresh Sakharkar for the sole purpose of abusing his 85-year-old stepmother, Janabai.

“On seeing me, the parrot uses bad language and foul words. That is why I have complained thrice in the last two years,” the woman told ZeeNews.com. “Police called me, Suresh and the parrot to the police station. Police should investigate and seize the parrot.”

The woman claimed her stepson trained the parrot to curse at her because of an ongoing land dispute between the two families.

Officers weren’t exactly able to question the parrot, but they did want to see if the bird would let the f-bombs fly in police custody.


“We watched the parrot carefully but it did not utter a word at the police station after being confronted by the complainant,” Police Inspector P S Dongre told New Delhi Television Limited.

Despite the lack of proof, officials decided the woman’s “harassed mental condition” was enough reason to remove the allegedly foul-mouthed parrot from its owner and hand him over to forestry officials, according to NDTV.

Training parrots to talk like sailors seems to be a popular pastime.

In May, a woman in Tracy, California, reported her neighbor to the local Animal Control because the woman’s parrot kept saying what sounded like “puta,” a Spanish slur similar to “whore” in English.
