The parrot was calmly enjoying the ride on its owner’s shoulders as they were both being rescued by the officials. Supposedly, the man was rescuing the parrot at first but ended up needing to be saved as well.


On August 12, a Canadian man was rescued after he got stuck in the waist-level mud on one of the dredged lakes at Bicentennial Park in Belleville.

Reports revealed his pet parrot flew off from his shoulder and towards the center of the lake.

At 4:30 p.m., fire crews responded at the scene after a bystander called them when he heard the man asking for help.

For Belleville Fire Chief Tom Pour, it was a sticky situation.

According to Pour, the man was “probably several hundred feet out into the mud with the parrot on his back.”

“It was challenging because you couldn’t just walk out there and hoist him out. It was like quicksand,” he added.

The firemen had to come up with a strategy and placed several ladders down on the drier portions of the lake. It was like a make-shift bridge.


Reports revealed the rescue operation last for 15 minutes. With the joint efforts of the firefighters, the man was successfully pulled out from the quicksand-like mud.

Pour said that the man was a regular comer at the park. He would often bike around with his parrot on his shoulder.

He added that it was the first time the man and his parrot went through what they experienced.

“It was a pretty unusual thing,” said Pour.


After he was pulled out, fire crews had to hose off the man to get the mud off of him.

In another parrot-related story, a video of hungry parrots visiting a man’s apartment became viral. Every day, the parrots come to the man’s balcony to get a free treat.
