Jessie is a beautiful bright yellow and turquoise parrot. She had escaped her owner’s home and found on top of their neighbor’s roof in Edmonton, UK for three days. The London Fire Brigade came there after the RSPCA failed to get her down. But Jessie was less than welcoming to her rescuers.
The firefighter went up with food, a fluffy towel, and instructions to tell the bird ‘I love you,’ and rescue her. She kindly told him to fu*k off without coming straight to him. Chris Swallow, the fire brigade manager explained that Jessie hadn’t come down she had been on the same roof for three days and it might be injured.
“We then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement.”
The bird flew off to another roof, and then back down to her owner without any help after the bird called the fireman everything but a nice young man.
The spokesperson said, “As with this incident, the RSPCA should be contacted in the first instance, and we would always urge people to do the same if they see an animal stuck or in distress. If the RSPCA requires our assistance, they will call us, and we are happy to assist with our specialist equipment.”
