Rhode Island city drops cussing cockatoo case

Continue reading below

Warwick officials have dropped their case against the owner of a foul-mouthed cockatoo that hurled expletives at a neighbor. Resident Lynn Taylor was fined $15 last year for violating the local noise ordinance after the neighbor complained about the bird’s profane rants. The neighbor lived with Taylor’s former husband. Police told WJAR-TV that they recently dropped the case because of the cost of fighting Taylor’s appeal of the fine. Officials said it was in the city’s best interest not to use its resources to try to enforce a $15 citation. Taylor appealed the fine to Providence Superior Court.
