A parrot in England that was once kicked out of a sanctuary for swearing too much, is at it again. This time, he’s using an Amazon Alexa to order items while his owner is away.
Rocco, an African grey parrot, reportedly learned how to use Alexa to order watermelon and strawberries. He also attempted to order light bulbs, ice cream and a kite.
The owner, who works at the sanctuary, adopted Rocco after he was removed from the sanctuary for his foul language. She says she has to check her account every day to see what the parrot has done.
“I have to check the shopping list when I come in from work and cancel all the items he’s ordered,” she said.
Along with using the device to order things, Rocco also uses Alexa to listen to music, and reportedly is a big fan of the band Kings of Leon.
“They chat away to each other all day,” she said. “Often I come in and there’s music playing.”
Fortunately, none of Rocco’s orders go on to be purchased, thanks to a parental lock on the device.
