Florida parakeet foils robbery at neighbor's house
Emerald, a 21-year-old parakeet perched in Florida, helped foil a break-in at a neighbor's home by squawking louder than normal, making owner Suzette Beesley realize that something was wrong, MyFoxTampaBay.com reported.Now, in all seriousness, kudos to the neighbor for being aware of her surroundings, paying attention to her pet, and getting involved by calling the police. She could very easily have just tossed a sheet over the bird's cage to stop the squawking and gone about her day, oblivious to the world around her. Instead, she realized that something was out of the ordinary, investigated the source of that something, and then called the authorities. It's just about the perfect outcome, especially when this dude gets to jail and they find out what tipped the cops to him.
Beesley took a look outside her Tampa nest and saw some birdbrain trying to burglarize her neighbor's house.
I wonder if they denied his bail because he might pose a [you know I have to do this] flight risk?
That is all.
