Freddy the parrot makes it back to zoo after being stolen, shot and bitten by snake.

An Amazonian parrot called Freddy Krueger has made headlines in Brazil after managing to find its way back to the zoo from which it was stolen while recovering from a four-year nightmare that saw it shot in a gun battle, abducted by armed thieves and bitten by a snake.

The turquoise-fronted Amazon parrot – whose Elm Street-inspired moniker stems from its bullet-disfigured face – was pilfered from a zoo in the southern city of Cascavel on the night of 16 April.

According to Brazil’s Folha de São Paulo newspaper, Freddy’s capture was just the latest in a series of misadventures to affect the Amazona aestiva bird.

Earlier this month, the parrot was reportedly bitten on the leg by a snake – thankfully of a non-venomous variety.

Two days later, however, Freddy returned, discovered by zoo staff at the foot of a pine tree beside his cage. »

It’s a much smarter idea than the phrase “vertical TV” would lead you to believe.

Acknowledging that most mobile content is vertical, Samsung says the Sero is designed to encourage young people to project more of their smartphone stuff onto the TV by allowing it to go vertical.
