Parrot Which Got Trapped On Roof In North London Told Firefighters To 'F*** Off' As They Tried To Rescue It

A parrot, which got stuck on a roof in North London, hurled expletives at the firefighters who tried to rescue it.

Jessie, a yellow and blue Macaw parrot got stuck on the roof of a house in Edmonton, North London, for around three days. Eventually, the London Fire Brigade attended the scene with the intention of getting the bird down. But as they struggled to free the bird, it asked them to ‘f*** off’.

LFB Watch Manager Chris Swallow said: "Jessie had been on the same roof for three days and there were concerns that she may be injured which is why she hadn't come down.

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

Apparently, Jessie had picked up on a few bad words from her trainer as a joke. But the trainer obviously had no idea that one day it will turn back at him when Jessie uses the words on her saviors.

The Fire Service reportedly faced a lot of issues trying to bring Jessie down. Besides her foul mouth, Jessie kept flying from one roof to another and then into the trees, complicating the capture.

A spokesperson for the Fire Service 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."
