Getting dragged to dinner parties by your girlfriend can suck. That's a fact of life. But it's no reason to murder her parrot with a serving fork. Unfortunately, it seems an Everett man may have forgotten this bit of social etiquette.
As the Seattle Times noted this morning, a 63-year-old Everett man was arrested Sunday after his girlfriend reportedly returned home from a shopping trip to find the house trashed and her parrot dead. Citing the police report, the Times reports that the woman told investigators that her boyfriend had grown "quiet" after she informed him they'd been invited to dinner at a friend's house.
Shortly thereafter the woman left for the store. When she returned she encountered a grisly scene.
More from the Times:
When officers entered the home they found blood stains in several rooms, the slain parrot, a bloody serving fork and the suspect asleep in the basement. Mirrors, furniture, a DVD player and other items were broken, as well, police said.
The alleged parrot killer was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree malicious mischief, domestic-violence, and first-degree animal cruelty.
Something tells us he probably killed the relationship, too.
