. . . in a situation like this one:
Dallas Homeowner Fatally Shoots Intruder After Parrot 'Hello'
As a man passed by a window at his home, Salvador [the parrot] began saying "Hello, hello," awaking Baker.
Baker then saw the intruder on a surveillance system and shot him inside the home's detached garage, police said.
The intruder, who was identified as John Woodson, 46, was taken to Parkland Hospital in critical condition. He died a short time later.
"Beware of parrot" might become the new "Beware of dog."
