Parrot 3421965 1920

LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Someone in Florida dialed 911 after hearing chilling cries and the words “Let me out!”

But the cries were that of a 40-year-old parrot named Rambo.

After the call, four Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies pulled up and questioned a man who appeared to be repairing a car in his driveway.

The Palm Beach Post reports that when the deputies showed up and explained their concerns, the man introduced them to Rambo.

He told the officers that he taught Rambo to scream “Let me out!” years ago when Rambo lived in a cage. The incident happened Dec. 29.
