WUNSY, a crime-fighting parrot, has saved his owner after she was pushed to the ground in a park.

The African grey was being taken for a walk – and fly – in Sunny Hill Park, north London, on Friday when his female owner was grabbed by the shoulders and shoved.

He flapped his wings and squawked, causing the attacker to take flight towards Great North Road, Hendon. PC Chris Cutmore, from Colindale police station, said: "This was a random attack on a woman walking out of a park.

"Although the parrot Wunsy came to her rescue, we are obviously very keen to trace the suspect and prevent him from attacking anybody else.

"I would encourage anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who has seen the man in the local area to call police."
