Pic­ture of Dutch ‘jail­bird’ sparks so­cial me­dia storm

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

A pic­ture of a par­rot “locked up” in a Dutch po­lice cell is giv­ing new mean­ing to jail­bird. When po­lice ar­rested a man on sus­pi­cion of shoplift­ing in Utrecht, they found the lit­tle bird on the sus­pect’s shoul­der. Po­lice did not have a bird cage on hand so the feath­ered felon was put in a cell with a sand­wich and wa­ter. Po­lice posted the pic­ture on In­sta­gram that sparked a wave of pithy re­marks. The com­ments in­cluded — the bird “won’t sing like a ca­nary” and was “de­nied bail be­cause he’s a flight risk.”
