Polly want help? Parrot, not person, draws cops

Deliveryman hears screaming, calls 911

A UPS driver in Oregon thought he heard a person screaming.

Alarmed, he called his wife, who called the police.

A Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputy cautiously approached the home, The Oregonian reported.

Inside, he surveyed the scene and let out a sigh of relief -- and then a chuckle.

The source of the screams? A parrot named Diego.

Despite the pet's cries for "help" on Monday, Deputy Hayden Sanders found Diego unharmed, The Oregonian reported.
