Owners Teach Their Bird to Poo in the Loo

I’ve seen toilet-trained cats and dogs before, but never a bird! This really does take pet humanization to the next level.

Emil, the 10 year old jako parrot who lives in Sweden, has been potty-trained since he was four months old.

The owner of the bird, Yasmin Mughal, says that he is happy that he can use the toilet instead of soiling the carpets or furniture when he comes out of his cage.

"We placed him on the toilet and told him to make a poo, which he did and from that moment he has known that if he goes to the toilet, makes a poo, he can come up," she said.
