Sheriff Deputies Investigate Cries Of 'Let Me Out!'

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Department recently made a house call. Someone inside kept yelling, let me out. Turns out, the cries were coming from a playful bird. When deputies questioned the homeowner, he brought out his 40-year-old parrot Rambo. The man taught the bird the unnerving phrase when he was a kid. Back then, Rambo was kept in a birdcage. The deputies had a good laugh and then considered the case closed.
