Parrot on London roof tells firefighter to ‘f*** off’ during rescue attempt

Jessie the Macaw parrot had spent three days languishing on a rooftop

Officers from the London Fire Brigade were called to the scene on Monday to save Jessie, a turquoise and yellow Macaw parrot, who had gotten stuck on a roof for three days, the Telegraph reported.

Her owners, concerned she may have been injured and was unable to get down herself, called the fire crew who were all ready to swoop in and save the day before Jessie gave them a piece of her mind. It's also a bit rich coming from an animal that can actually fly but has still found itself stuck on a roof.

But when a firefighter trekked to the roof to tell her, Jessie started hurling expletives at him.

But the parrot told the firefighters to "f*** off", according to a witness.

The fire crew set up a ladder and a volunteer went up to try and coax the bird over with a bowl of food.

Watch Manager Chris Swallow said the crew were told to tell the bird "I love you" in order to bond with her.

To encourage the bird to cooperate, he was advised to say "I love you" to her.

"We then discovered that she had a bit of a foul mouth and kept swearing, much to our amusement", said Swallow.

It emerged Jessie also speaks Turkish and Greek, "so we tried telling her to "come" in both those languages too", Mr Swallow added.

But we feel it's important to point out that Jessie has great admiration for the fearless crew of firefighters who came to her aid.

She even flew to another roof, and then to a nearby tree where she was finally reunited with her owners.

As for Jessie, she did eventually seem to have a change of heart.

A spokesperson said: "As with this incident, the RSPCA should be contacted in the first instance and we would always urge people to do the same if they see an animal stuck or in distress".

'If the RSPCA require our assistance, they will call us and we are happy to assist with our specialist equipment'.
