PRINSTON, New Jersey (WPVI) – An anti-animal officer called to rescue a parrot in Princeton, New Jersey.

But what was someone’s feather friend turned out to be a fake.

It all started on Wednesday when a concerned citizen named Tim Lynch spotted a parrot in a wooded area.

He was alarmed at the thought that someone’s exotic bird had probably flown out the window.

He took the photo and sent it to his nephew, a sergeant, at the Princeton Police Department.

Concerned, especially because of the bad weather, the sergeant urgently sent Animal Control Officer Jim Ferry to rescue the parrot.

He met with Lynch at the scene, and intensive rescue operations began.

“The two of us went back there, not wanting to scare him away, and when we get closer, I think, ‘My God, this poor man is dead,'” Lynch said. “We’re about two feet away, he’s going to drop the net, and he says, ‘It’s a fake.’

“We at Animal Control have a saying that a sick or injured animal is very easy to catch, and it was probably the easiest catch I’ve ever had,” Ferry said.

Princeton Police have released a photo in which Officer Ferry holds a ceramic bird in his hands after the rescue.

He brought him back to the police station in a cage.

He is now in police custody until his owner is found.
