Rombout Thanked, In Letter to Poughkeepsie Journal Editor, for Rescuing a Pet Parrot
Firefighters rescued a precious pet parrot
I'd like to thank the Rombout Fire Department for saving my Quaker parrot. My mom and I had put her outside in her cage for fresh air, but she undid a twist-tie and got loose. She is green and small, so we had a hard time chasing her from tree to tree and spotting her.
When the firefighters came, they helped us chase her. It took a while, but they caught her and brought her home safely. Now my bird, Dazzle, sits at home safe and sound.
I thought my Fourth of July weekend would be ruined by the loss of a pet, but thanks to the Rombout Fire Department, my Fourth was the best one yet. Thank you, guys, for making a 13-year-old happy.
