LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. — Deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of someone screaming for help at a Lake Worth Beach home — only to find that the screamer was a parrot.

The owner of the parrot was in his driveway, changing his car's brakes when deputies arrived.

When police explained that they had been called to the house because of a screaming woman, the man brought his parrot, "Rambo" outside for deputies to see and they all had a laugh.

According to the description of the video posted on YouTube, the man says he taught Rambo to yell "help, help, let me out" when the parrot was younger and lived in a cage.
