`A giant escaped parrot has been caught by police after a violent struggle in which it tore up the uniform of one of the arresting officers, police said.
Walkers in a forest near the town of Walldürn in southwestern Germany had alerted police that a huge bird with a colorful plumage was sitting in a tree.
Two policemen dispatched to the scene caught sight of the parrot, which was about 90 centimeters (about three feet) long. “He didn’t say anything, and definitely didn’t provide his name and address. He just screeched deafeningly,” said a spokesman for the Walldürn police.’
