Well, this would be the 2nd. time in USA trial history i think, a bloody parrot being considered to give evidence for the prosecution......the mind boggles.
A pet parrot may be used in trial of a woman who killed a man, the owner of the bird, a report says. The bird, a 19-year-old African grey parrot called Bud, has been repeating the phrase “don’t f**king shoot” ever since his owner, Martin Duram, was shot dead in May 2015. Duram was shot multiple times in Sand Lake, Michigan by his wife Glenna, 48, who was charged with first-degree murder on Thursday.
Newaygo county prosecuting attorney said that his office is studying Bud’s words and trying to see whether it could be admissible in court.www.presstv.ir...
“He’s using Marty’s voice,” said Christina Keller, Duram’s ex-wife, who now owns Bud. “It imprinted in his brain, and he can’t let it go”. “That bird picks up everything and anything, and it’s got the filthiest mouth around,”
