For years, I have warned clients of the dangers of parakeets and their ability to give evidence against you. We have an example of this testimonial capability out of Sagamihara, Japan, though with a happy ending. Piko-chan was lost and simply gave police his address.
The owner says that she previously lost a parakeet so she taught the bird her address. When asked however about the parakeet giving the chemical composition of methamphetamine, the owner insisted that Piko-chan is almost a habitual liar. (Okay, I made up the last part but that would have been awesome).
The male bird, called Piko-chan, escaped early Sunday morning from his home in the city of Sagamihara and remained at large before being coaxed into perching on the shoulder of a guest at a nearby hotel.
He was handed over to local police, but Piko-chan did not speak until Tuesday evening, when he blurted out the names of the city and district where his owner’s home is located, a police spokesman said.
The stunned cops then listened as the parakeet produced the home’s block and street number.
