London Firefighters Rescue Foul-Mouthed Parrot From Roof

It’s not exactly clear if a foul-mouthed parrot wanted to be rescued after being stranded on a roof for three days.

Jessie the Macaw parrot had a few "colorful" words for firefighters that came to her aid on Monday. 

Firefighters feared the bird might be injured because she’d been in the same spot so long.

“Our crew manager was the willing volunteer who went up the ladder to try and bring Jessie down. We were told that to bond with the parrot, you have to tell her ‘I love you’, which is exactly what the crew manager did,” the London Fire Brigade wrote in a press release

Jessie, however, wasn’t in the bonding mood apparently. 

“While Jessie responded ‘I love you’ back, we then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement,” the brigade wrote.

Thankfully, the bird wasn’t injured as officials found out when she flew to another roof.

Jessie was eventually rescued and returned to her owner. 

She finally found the right words to say in a video thanking the firefighters for what they’d done. 

“I love you,” she said.
