Subject: Man sues over mynah bird's insults

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/15/11 at 11:48 am

A Taiwanese man has failed in a bid to sue his neighbours - for training a mynah bird to insult him.

Wang Han-chin, an electrician in central Taiwan, accused five neighbours of inflicting emotional stress and injuries.

He says they trained the mynah bird to call him a "clueless big-mouthed idiot" every time it saw him, reports the Liberty Times.

Wang claimed the bird's insults caused "serious distress, making him lose concentration at work so he suffered burn injuries".

He says the neighbours taught the bird to curse at him as revenge after he complained to the police that they were too loud.

However, they denied the allegations and prosecutors decided to drop the charges due to insufficient evidence linking the bird to Wang's injuries.
