Profane parrot accused of calling neighbors ‘whore,’ making catcalls

TRACY (KRON) — Some innocent people in Tracy are fed up with their neighbor’s harassment. They say Rula has been making catcalls at them and swearing at neighbors in Spanish, and now they’re calling on the city to do something about it.

Rula is a parrot, and the locals say it has a loose beak.

Tracy Animal Services Supervisor Ben Miller says he has received several complaints about the parrot.

“Well, bird complaints are a little unusual,” said Miller.

Jessica Baca says the bird is constantly saying “whore” in Spanish which her grandkids began repeating after hearing the parrot say it. Baca says she recorded the parrot saying the word and is convinced the bird is calling her a prostitute.

Rula’s owner, Rita Canisales, says Baca is mistaken because the bird is not bilingual. The parrot is actually saying his own name, which sounds similar to the offending word, according to Canisales.

“All I’ve taught ever since it was little is English,” said Canisales.

Miller’s office can’t confirm that the bird is swearing in Spanish because his staff isn’t bilingual.
