Here is a bizarre story out of Columbia. Drug traffickers are training parrots to alert them to possible drug raids by law enforcement.
A parrot in Columbia was “arrested” because they believe he tipped of a drug cartel family about a police raid. The bird reportedly alerted the drug cartel by yelling “Run! Run! You’re going to get caught!” in Spanish.
This isn’t the first parrot that has been “arrested” in Columbia. Apparently police have taken into custody over 1,700 parrots being used by drug cartels as trained look outs. Now they are jail birds!
Watch the video on the drug cartel look-out parrots – you can actually hear the parrot speaking in Spanish – warning someone to run.
