I plan on remodeling the kitchen and installing a gas cooktop. I now plan on keeping a closer eye on my parrot so that she doesn't try to bump me off.

No mention if the suicidal, murderous, parrot survived.

It would have been a suicide/murder by the Parrot! The gas would have killed the bird long before it knocked out the owner! :sick: :long:

The article says that she was revived and spoke to the police.

BD, hilarious!!! Right Ty, miners used to take parakeets in the mines with them because if the bird died the men would know there was a dangerous amount of gas present and leave.
