In news that could only seem fathomable in 2019, a budgie has been 'arrested' by police in Holland.
According to a tongue-in-cheek Instagram post by Dutch police force Police Utrecht Centrum, a budgie was detained by police.
Translated into English (by Google translate, of course) the post reads:
We recently arrested a suspect for a shoplifting. During the arrest we found a sneaky witness with feathers and beak on the suspect's shoulder.
During the confinement on our desk we were shocked to find out that we are not in possession of a bird cell or cage....
After proper consultation with the suspect we have enclosed them together samen ... * and of course well cared for!
