A parrot landed its owner in hot water after accidentally exposing a husband’s affair with the housekeeper in front of his wife.
The pesky bird began repeating the conversations the man was having with his lover, causing suspicion with his wife.
Realising that the parrot was picking up the flirty comments from inside the home, she put two and two together and exposed their love affair.
The couple live in Kuwait where adultery is illegal, and so the wife marched to police with the parrot as evidence.
Luckily for her spouse, they rejected it on the basis that the bird could have overheard the sweet nothings on the TV or radio.
The wife said she has suspected for some time that her husband was cheating on her, according to local newspaper Al Shahed Daily.
Adultery in Kuwait can result in a prison sentence or forced hard labour.
