Monkey, parrot foil attempted burglary
ZARQA (Petra) — A monkey and parrot team that entertains customers at a Zarqa cafeteria scared off a burglar who sneaked into the premises at night. The café owner kept the parrot who knows words like “my love,” “liar,” “thief,” “welcome” and “goodbye” — to amuse his clientele, while the monkey served them ashtrays and napkins. The burglar was heading for the cash register when the parrot started shouting “thief… thief” and the monkey pelted him with ashtrays and plates before turning on the light. Several young men near the café jumped in to help but the burglar had fled the scene by then.
