The ex-wife of a western Michigan man believes a parrot is repeating something said just before his fatal shooting but a prosecutor is downplaying whether that could be used in court.
“I’m not aware of any legal precedent for that,” Newaygo county prosecutor Robert Springstead told the Associated Press on Monday.
“Certainly, as we work our way through the case, that may be something to look at, but I highly doubt there is any precedent for that.”
Also, Springstead said, when a judge asks a witness to raise his or her right hand, “to a parrot, are you raising a wing, a foot?”
Not sure this would work. Polly will say anything for a cracker.
