Ann Arbor police spokeswoman Lt. Renee Bush said officers received three 911 calls from witnesses at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday about a man attacking an unknown animal near the intersection of Pauline Boulevard and South Seventh Street, AnnArbor.com reported Thursday.

Bush said officers located the 49-year-old man and spotted him shaking the parrot while it was "squawking loudly" with its feathers "flying all over."

The spokeswoman said the man told officers he was "disciplining and training" the bird, which was turned over to an animal rescue volunteer.

The man was taken to Washtenaw County Jail with charges pending, Bush said.
