Fire fighters rescue parrot

By Iceland Review

Sesselja, an Ara Macao parrot, escaped from its owner and got stuck in a tree in Reykjavík last night. Fire fighters rushed to the scene.

The parrot flew away from its owner, Agatha Agnarsdóttir, when she was carrying the bird outside to its cage. It got stuck in a tree on the other side of the road. Fréttabladid reports.

Agnarsdóttir called the Reykjavík fire department and shortly afterwards a fire truck arrived at the scene. The bird was stuck because of the dense vegetation and the fire fighters had to use a crane to recover it.

The bird had become soaking wet in the pouring rain and, according to Agnarsdóttir, might have caught pneumonia had it not been for the fire fighters’ swift rescue. Needless to say, she was relieved at being reunited with her beloved parrot.
