Parrot mocks owner during quarantine workout


Story and video from SWNS

A parrot ruthlessly mocks its owner - by laughing hysterically during his quarantine workout.

Emma, a 30-year-old macaw, cackled while Kelly Cameron, 40, attempted to exercise on his living room floor.

"She laughed at me every time I did sit-ups," said Kelly, a call centre worker from Iowa, USA.

"But I thought it was funny. I was just working out with my daughter to keep her busy while we're in quarantine. She was getting kind of stir crazy."

Emma might seem totally at home with the Cameron family, but it took her many months to feel comfortable enough to laugh at them.

"Emma is a rescue and we have come a very long way in building trust," said Kelly's wife, Jennifer, 35.

"Our 12-year-old daughter Callah has a very strong bond with Emma and is currently the only family member that can physically handle her without getting bitten."

She added: "We're so glad that she can laugh with us. We understand that she is a highly perceptive and intelligent creature. We're so thankful to have been able to welcome her into our family."
