Nicolás Krumm, a journalist, was in Chile the other day to cover a recent heist when he unintentionally fell victim to one himself.
It was a bird who was to blame in this situation.
While the camera rolled for Krumm’s report on news station CHV Noticias, a parrot passing by evidently saw an opportunity for ill-gotten gain. And she took it.
The parrot flew in and landed softly on Krumm’s shoulder. But it didn’t stay a Disney princess moment for long.
Without warning, the parrot then grabbed the earbud Krumm was wearing — then fled.

The little bird’s crime couldn’t have been more brazen, especially given that it was all caught on tape.
Yet she seemed to have no regrets.
Fortunately, Krumm handled the incident with grace and finished presenting his report. Later, with the cameraman’s assistance, Krumm was able to locate his stolen earpiece that had been dropped nearby.
But the parrot is still evading capture.
