It's one thing to have a feud with your neighbor. It's a whole 'nother thing entirely when said feud involves a cockatoo. A swearing cockatoo.
Let's see if you can follow the twists and turns of this story which can only be called the opposite of neighborly love over at Rhody Beat:
According to Melker, neighbors Lynne Taylor and Chris Levasseur, residents at 51 Harris Avenue, are harassing them extensively. She claims Taylor verbally insults them by yelling obscenities as well as threatening them. Now, says Melker, Taylor has also gotten her umbrella cockatoo, Willy, involved.
Since June 2011, Melker claims the bird has been calling her a “f*cking wh*re.” This ruffles Melker’s feathers.
