Lost parrot told police his name & address

Who needs a collar when your pet can memorize and repeat its name and address?

Japanese police were at a loss for clues after they found an escaped African Grey parrot sitting on a fence.

Until, that is, the bird began to talk – and told everyone its name and address.

The red-tailed parrot was picked up earlier this month in the town of Nagareyama, on the outskirts of Tokyo, after a woman called police to say that it was perched in her backyard.

After a night at the station, where it kept quiet, the parrot was handed over to a local animal clinic, where it soon started greeting people and singing popular children’s songs.

Shinjiro Uemura, a local policeman, said that it was not until ten days later that it started repeating its name – “I’m Yosuke Nakamura” – and its full home address down to the street number.

The information allowed police to find the Nakamura family and return their pet. It turns out they had been teaching Yosuke to say his own name and address for about two years.
