That’s gratitude… stranded parrot tells rescuer to eff off

Potty-mouthed parrot greets rescuer with four-letter tirade Stranded potty-mouthed parrot greets firefighters with four letter tirade

The female parrot named Jesse, who could not descend from the roof of a house in London, swore at came to the aid of firefighters.

Other unusual creatures the London Fire Brigade have recently lent a hand to include an iguana stuck on a roof, a kitten trapped in a bongo drum, and a chimp wedged in a chimney.

It soon became clear that Jessie was not injured.

A "foul-mouthed" parrot launched a four-letter tirade at a firefighter as he tried to rescue the bird from a neighbour's roof in north London.

Before heading up the ladder, Jessie's owner told the firefighter to say "I love you" to her in an attempt to gain her trust, but the parrot clearly didn't reciprocate his feelings. After she finished excoriating her rescuer the bird simply flew off towards its owner.

Neither her owner nor an RSPCA volunteer was able to convince her to come down, so the fire brigade was called. "We were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her 'I love you, ' which is exactly what the crew manager did".

Former Indian PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee in critical condition
Vajpayee was admitted at the AIIMS with a kidney tract infection, urinary tract infection, low urine output and chest congestion. Incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi government in 2014 declared Vajpayee's birthday, 25 December, as "Good Governance Day".

Watch Manager Chris Swallow was anxious Jessie was injured because she hadn't come back down after so many days. But Jessie is no ordinary person, nor is she person at all.

Swallow said that in instances like this pet owners should always contact the RSPCA before the emergency services.

She had a special message for the brigade, which her owner recorded on video once the macaw was home, safe and sound. Jessie returned home uninjured after her long weekend several stories up.

The amusing exchange between Jessie and the firefighter was shared on Twitter by the London Fire Brigade's official account.

'If the RSPCA require our assistance, they will call us and we are happy to assist with our specialist equipment'.
