巴西警方於週一破獲東北部一處毒窟。同時,一名鸚鵡在警方攻堅時不斷以葡萄牙語大叫「媽媽,警察!」目前也已被警方以共犯逮捕。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – A parrot was taken into custody on April 22 for repeatedly yelling “Mama, police!” at the arrival of law enforcement.

一名參與攻堅行動之警員認為,該鸚鵡可能受過特殊訓練,且當時在警方進入毒窟之當下,鸚鵡即毫不猶豫地大叫,提醒毒販主人。| An officer said that the bird “must have been trained that way” only to warn his owners, seeing that he exactly knew to squawk loudly as soon as the police came near the house. (Screenshot)

據了解,該名鸚鵡因忠心替主人把風,而警方也決定同時將2名毒梟,連同鸚鵡3者一起逮捕歸案。

The tropical bird, which was on the lookout for danger, was “arrested” by police officers conducting a raid on two alleged drug dealers – a man and a woman.

巴西警方於特拉辛納(Teresina)城附近搜索一處毒窟,雖然攻堅行動幾乎遭該鸚鵡嚴重破壞,但最後警方仍順利逮補一對毒販夫婦、以及他們飼養的鸚鵡一名。警方於尋獲大量古柯鹼、大麻、以及鉅額現金。

The parrot almost spoiled the drug raid in the city of Teresina, said the Brazilian authorities, who found large amounts of cocaine, marijuana, and cash at the residence of the suspects.

英國衛報報導,一名當地記者表示該鸚鵡於抵達警局後始終保持沈默,堅決「不發一語」。

A journalist from The Guardian said the bird seemed to have invoked its right to remain silent, stressing that “it hasn’t made a sound so far.”

據報導,巴西警方應動保團體要求,於週三(24日)將該鸚鵡轉交於特拉辛納動物園管理,並由動物園人員教導其飛行等生活技能。

Local police planned to transfer the bird to Teresina Zoo after environmentalists requested that the bird is freed and taught to fly, GloboNews said.

然而,當地獸醫Alexandre Clark表示,目前鸚鵡在動物園亦保持緘默。美國華盛頓郵報在一則報導中指出,儘管在眾多警方來訪後,該鸚鵡仍不發一語。

Veterinarian Alexandre Clark remarked, however, that the parrot has remained silent in the presence of police officers.

一名參與攻堅行動之警員認為,該鸚鵡可能受過特殊訓練,且當時在警方進入毒窟之當下,鸚鵡即毫不猶豫地大叫,提醒毒販主人。

An officer said that the bird “must have been trained that way” only to warn his owners, seeing that it knew to squawk loudly as soon as the police came near the house.

目前警方表示,該化名為「印度」的毒販主人,已曾有過2次販毒被逮之刑事紀錄。

According to local media outlets, the bird’s owner, nicknamed “India” was arrested twice for drug trafficking.
