Dude Sues Neighbors: Claims They Trained Their Bird To Curse At Him
"The offensive squawks of a pet bird so enraged a Taiwanese man that he sued its owners -- his neighbours -- for inflicting emotional stress and injuries, a report said Tuesday.
Wang Han-chin, an electrician in central Taiwan, accused five neighbours of teaching their mynah, a parrot-like bird, to curse at him as revenge after he complained to the police that they were too loud, the Liberty Times reported.
Wang alleged that whenever he left home, the bird would see him off with the words `Clueless big-mouthed idiot`, causing serious distress and making him lose concentration at work so he suffered burn injuries, it said."
Han-chin needs to learn not to sweat the small stuff, I`m sure he has greater worries than a bird with a dirty mouth.
This idiot actually pressed charges against his neighbors, but the prosecutors dropped the charges due to insufficient evidence linking the bird to his alleged injures.
His neighbors had a good laugh when the prosecutors dropped the charges, they are probably teaching the mynah new insults.
If Han-chin`s case goes to trial his only hope is if he call the bird as a witness, and he squeals like a stool pigeon.
