An intrepid parrot named Rambo was rescued by firefighters after becoming entangled in the web of its own leash in a Goodmayes tree.
Four firefighters from Ilford fire station were called to Goodmayes Lane Allotments, in Goodmayes Lane, to reports of a parrot stuck in a tree at around 4pm on Sunday (April 22).
There they found Rambo, wearing a harness with a leash attached, enravelled in a tree accompanied by his two concerned owners.
“It was just making squawking noises, it was obviously frightened,” said James Jobson, Ilford fire station’s crew manager, when asked as to whether the parrot spoke.
Commenting on the rescue effort, he said: “It was quite tricky, it probably took one hour.
“It was quite an unusual one.
“[The owners] were quite relieved when we managed to safely bring him down to ground level.”
