Owner stuck up a tree
5th May 2022

By Meghan Taylor
In a reversal of the classic ‘pet stuck up a tree’ tale, this time it was the turn of an owner to be rescued.
 
The Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service were contacted by a concerned member of the public who had spotted a woman stuck up an 18ft tree; she had become trapped while trying to retrieve her escaped pet parrot.
 
The crew of firefighters, hailing from Trowbridge, Chippenham, Warminster and Devizes, successfully used a 12m ladder to help the woman back down to safety. No further details were given regarding the pet parrot's recapture.
