Parrot attached itself to man's head
17:45 CEST+02:00
A man in Stockholm had to go to ask vets for help on Monday morning after a parrot landed on his head and refused to move.

The bird "came out of nowhere," according to Catharina Nordin of Stockholm Police, who was quoted by news agency Sveriges Nyheter.

Despite efforts by the man and his wife, it proved impossible to remove the bird. They were forced to seek help at the local animal hospital, which by luck happened to be situated just a few hundred metres from their home in Bagarmossen, south Stockholm.

Neither police nor staff at the animal hospital were able to give more details of the event. It is not known whether the man or bird sustained injuries, or whether the parrot's owner has been traced.
