You Won't Believe What This Lost Parrot Did To Get Home!
This is not your average lost animal story! While most pets wonder until found, this proactive parrot went looking for help. Baby, a three-year-old female Quaker Parrot,escaped out of her owners home in Bolton, Caledon and found herself lost.
Soon, 911 dispatchers received a call like no other! Brandon Muir called to tell them that a parrot had flown into the cab of his truck approximately 50 kilometres northwest of Toronto, Canada. “It's kind of outrageous to hear the whole story, really," Muir said with a laugh. It's like one of those stories you have to see to believe. Muir had his passenger side window down and all of a sudden heard an unusual fluttering sound on the window, which turned out to be the sound of wings flapping. “I looked up, and there was a parrot standing on the outside edge of my pick-up truck!" he explained.
“He stepped right inside." Baby was obviously someone's pet, Muir knew he had to do something. “He seemed extremely content, like, 'Thanks! Let's go!'" Muir simply called 911 in hopes of being redirected to the police or animal control. “They forwarded me to the Caledon dispatchers and I told them they were going to think I was crazy and then explained the situation." With the help of his wife, they found lost bird pages on Facebook. The Dedonato family has had her since she was a few months old, and when their youngest son, Roman opened a door, Baby decided that she was going on a grand adventure.
"It's amazing the way that it all worked out, he (Muir) was at the right place at the right time and someone else might have just shooed her away," Roman's mother said. "I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am that he did what he did. Without him, she probably wouldn't be here today." “It's a miracle. We're so happy to have her home," Roman concluded.
