If you see or hear this bird, please call

From The Salt Lake Tribune:

A fire-and-brimstone preaching parrot is on the lam and his Alberta owner is praying for the bird’s return. Dale Doell’s prized African gray parrot, Solomon, has a 2,600-word vocabulary with an evangelical Christian message. “He preaches a full-scale sermon out of the Word of God, just like John the Baptist,” said Doell, who is a born-again Christian. The bird has been missing since Aug. 3 when it escaped Doell’s father-in-law’s home in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains while having its picture taken. However, Doell has learned a radio station in the town of Rocky Mountain House broadcast a tip from a caller last month about a parrot being found. The tip has given Doell, who lives in the southern Alberta city of Medicine Hat, the best lead yet that Solomon may be alive and squawking. “I’m so encouraged,” said Doell, 51. “I’m going to wait a little bit. I’m going to have a little bit more patience to see what the Lord is going to do.”

Now I wonder why that bird would want to escape?
