This Parrot Is No Stool Pigeon

It is a strange thing when a parrot gets hauled into a police station for questioning, but that is just what happened last week in Rajura, Maharashtra, India. This all started when an 85-year-old woman made a formal complaint that the bird had been swearing at her whenever she passed by.
