Cheeky Cockatoo Tries to Steal Woman's Earring

Morgana Boerner had a run-in with a wild Australian cockatoo recently, with the cheeky bird trying to steal her earring.

“This is what he did to it,” Boerner says in video of the encounter, holding up the mangled earring as she cowers, laughing, in her car.

“I’ve got way too much metal in my face for this bird,” she adds.

Boerner told Storyful that she hasn’t seen the cockatoo since, but has been told by locals in Geelong that his name is Charlie and he has quite a reputation for getting up to no good! Credit: Morgana Boerner via Storyful
