Don’t Rock His Perch
A legal battle is under way in the Greek city of Patras over a parrot facing a $600 parking ticket. The local council says the 18-year-old macaw's perch is illegally parked and is obstructing drivers because it blocks a metered parking space. Coco the parrot's owner, Lambros Michalopoulos, says the bird will die if it has to move back inside because he is a sociable creature. No one is backing down so the dispute is going to court.
