Because when Sanders emerged from the house, all trace of concern on his face had melted away. In fact, he started laughing. It turned out that no one at the house was in need of attention. Inside, all he found was a noisy parrot named Diego, which had learned to shout help.
Despite his screams, the bird was completely fine. “Sure enough it was Diego the parrot yelling for help,” Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office’s public information officer Sergeant Brian Jensen told Today. “Nobody was in distress. Diego was fine.”
