On 26 September, Utrecht police arrested a man suspected of robbing a store. It would be a common case if he didn’t have a pet bird along with him, perched on his shoulder. After the arrest, the police didn’t know exactly what to do with her and put her in the cell as well. That was the beginning of one of the crimes that made us laugh the most in recent times.
The case was published on Instagram, where the institution explained that the bird was being well treated and received bread and water. He even ate a lot
(Police officers described the animal as a ‘parakeet’, but the Internet does not accept generalisms and was even more specific saying that it was a lovebirdsknown in Brazil as parakeet-boyfriend)
When the case was reported by the local website RTV Utrecht (rtvutrecht.nl), the image of the bird was edited (perhaps by a nostalgic Monty Python fan) and it was given a tag, having its identity protected.
