Cockatoo Rebels By Ripping Apart Anti-Bird Spikes And Throwing Them Down To Humans

We all have to admit that sometimes we just have those days where all we feel is anger. Some people more than others – hey, don’t look at me! It’s not my fault most people are freakin’ idiots. A sentiment this cockatoo seems to share with me.

The story goes: Isaac Sherring-Tito was simply strolling down the sidewalk in Katoomba, New South Wales (that’s in Australia for all of you without a map) when something jagged, pointy and sharp fell a yard from him.

Now, if that were me I’d have turned in the opposite direction and ran for my life fearing that the freakin’ aliens have finally arrived! But Isaac looked up – told you some people are stupid – and saw a cockatoo using its beak and feet to tear apart an anti-bird system so it could continue its journey down a building ledge.

It wants to be a ‘jail’-bird!

As this is 2019, Isaac, naturally, started to film the bird on his phone. These millennials have no idea what it’s like to be without technology!

The cockatoo was not a happy bunny… I mean bird! The freakin’ ferocity to which it attacked the anti-bird contraption was extreme!

The cockatoo obviously has a vendetta against humans…

What is it doing in New South Wales?

For all of you who fell asleep during class, cockatoos are actually native to Australia. As well as Indonesia, New Guinea, the Philippines and the Solomon Islands.

Being in such a metropolitan area, however, is quite alarming… especially when it’s trying to freakin’ kill us all!

Cockatoos are known for living to as old as 60 (dependent upon species)! The thing is gonna bloody outlive me! One record-breaking case saw a captive bred cockatoo, named ‘Cookie’ of all things, lived to the ripe old age of 83 (1933-2016).

How is it able to do this much damage?!

I know what you’re thinking, how can a little bird cause so much destruction? (Anyone else got a notepad and pen at the ready for notes?)

Cockatoos are zygodactyl; meaning they have two toes facing forward and two that are pointing backwards. This is an mutation that allows the bird to use their feet in a similar manner to how we humans would use our hands. They are easily capable of climbing things but also tearing things apart…

The plot thickens…

It looks like this isn’t the only drama that the bird has caused. Check out this tweet!

The freakin’ cheeky cock-atoo!

Stealing food wasn’t enough for this cockatoo, he decided he really needed to go the extra mile. (What does he want – a Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell?)

He’s got us all divided!

Whatever your thoughts on the scenario, one thing’s for sure: the bird is freakin’ smarter than all of us!
