Smart Parrot Returned Home

By KJ Mullins     May 21, 2008 in World
When Yosuke the parrot got lost he was able to tell a stranger his address so he could be returned home. The police had found the African grey parrot two weeks ago on a neighbour's roof in Nagareyama, Japan.
Yosuke could have been home earlier except for the fact he didn't seem to like the police. The feathered member of the Nakamura family refused to speak to the police who were searching for clues about the bird.
The police took the parrot to a veterinary hospital while they continued to look for his family. The parrot perked up a few days after spending time with the vet and introduced himself as "Mr. Yosuke Nakamura."
Once Yosuke started talking he gave the vet his home address and entertained those around him by singing songs.
Sure enough Yosuke knew his address and the police were able to reunite the family who begun teaching their pet his name and address about two years ago.
