Firefighters Hear Screams for Help, Find Parrots in Burning Idaho Home



BOISE, Idaho, April 19 (UPI) — Firefighters responding to screams for assistance in a burning Idaho home said they thought they were saving people but instead rescued a group of parrots.

Emergency crews first heard the pleas for help as they approached the outside of the residence in Boise.

“What was actually recorded was them saying ‘fire, fire,’ ” Victor Islas with the Middleton Fire Department said. “That’s what we got. ‘Help. Fire.’ Yeah. It’s a smart bird, smart bird. So there was actually nobody besides the birds inside the house.”

The birds were removed and given oxygen. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Crews told reporters the parrots must have been trained to issue warnings.

I have always admired veterinarians, for their compassion towards animals as well as their ability and instincts to care for patients that could never tell them what was wrong or were it hurt.

Veterinarians take an oath to promote animal health and welfare and to also work to relieve animal suffering. However veterinarian Kristen Lindsey from Texas seemed to miss that part when last week she posted a picture of herself posing with the body of a dead cat. She had shot the orange tabby cat with a bow and arrow and was boasting about the kill on Facebook where she can bee seen smiling with the body. The image besides inciting a great deal of anger, reminded me of how trophy hunters pose with their kills.

The image was blurred on some media but the original can be seen here
