Pets That Have Helped Solve Crimes

Hira The Parrot

We often underestimate the intelligence of animals, and every so often a story arises that reminds us they’re actually quite smart. In the case of these 4 animals, they were pivotal in the solving of these crimes. Hira the parrot is one such story. In 2014 HIra’s owner Neelam Sharma and her dog were victims of a murder, and the police had zero suspects. After the crime, Vijay, the victim’s husband noticed that Hira would get very agitated anytime his nephew visited the house. Suspecting this might be a sign, Vijay told the police and they actually got the nephew to confess to the crime! Without Hira, the nephew might have gotten away with his crime.
