I'm not sure how I feel about the killing the guy part, but the bird is a hero.

Great story! I am the founder of a parrot sanctuary and one of our umbrella cockatoos started screaming one nite and wouldn't stop. We just got home and to our surprise, there was a man hiding at the top of our upstairs hallway. He was hiding from the police. The police knocked on my door and asked if they could search my house and reported that a person saw the intruder enter into my house. Bub the umbrella saved us from what could have been a very scary situation. Bub is my hero!! This is a true story. Visit our site to see photos of Bubba the umbrella cockatoo!
