Parrot adorably interrupts soccer match by landing on player’s head

216

We have often seen dogs, cats and even squirrels to casually interrupt a soccer match, but never a parrot. But since it’s a first time for everything, a few days ago a colorful parrot decided to join a women soccer match and it wasn’t shy at all.

ESCLARECENDO ALGUMAS COISAS: A CENA DE ONTEM DA ARARA POUSANDO EM MIM NÃO É UMA CENA TRISTE MAS SIM UMA CENA SIMBÓLICA. ISSO NÃO MUDA O CENÁRIO LAMENTÁVEL QUE ESTAMOS VIVENDO NO PANTANAL E EM TANTOS OUTROS LUGARES DO MUNDO POR CONSEQUÊNCIA DAS QUEIMADAS, MAS PROVA QUE AINDA EXISTEM PESSOAS CONSCIENTES E QUE SE IMPORTAM SIM COM NOSSOS ANIMAIS. ESTA ARARA, É A @ararapele , ELE É UMA ARARA QUE VIVE AQUI, NO CONDOMÍNIO DA GRANJA COMARY, COM SUA FAMÍLIA HUMANA E É UM ANIMAL DOMESTICADO, LICENCIADO PELO IBAMA E MUITO BEM TRATADO POR SEUS TUTORES. ELE É UM ANIMAL LIVRE E É JUSTAMENTE POR ISSO QUE NOS VISITA FREQUENTEMENTE DURANTE OS TREINOS. NORMALMENTE ELE FICA ASSISTINDO A TUDO DE CAMAROTE, PERTO DO GOL. COSTUMA FICAR NO TRAVESSÃO OU NA REDE ATRÁS DO GOL MAS ONTEM ELE RESOLVEU VER AS COISAS DE UM OUTRO ÂNGULO E COMO, PROVAVELMENTE, EU ERA A ÚNICA COM SANGUE PANTANEIRO (com muito orgulho) E COINCIDENTEMENTE O PONTO MAIS ALTO DENTRO DO CAMPO, ELE RESOLVEU POUSAR EM MIM. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Pra quem estava na dúvida se eu considero sorte ou azar, vou usar as palavras que alguém disse em um dos vários comentários na postagem de ontem: “Se uma joaninha pousar em vc significa sorte, imagina uma arara!” Né?! Hahahaha 📸 @maga.thais #araracaninde #arara #sospantanal #pantaneiro #MT #MS

The majestic macaw interrupted the game in a hilarious fashion, after it landed on a player’s head. Bruna Benites, player at SC Internacional was on the pitch when spotted the bird coming from the sky. “I looked ahead and saw that it was coming towards me,” she told Globo News. “I just turned around and thought it was going to pass [by me].” But it didn’t!

“What is the probability that a macaw will land on you in the middle of training,” the player later wrote on Instagram.

The moment sent every players and staff into laughter, especially they’re all familiar with the parrot who apparently is a very big soccer fan. Named Pelé, after the legendary Brazilian soccer player, the friendly macaw lives a few blocks away from the stadium. And whenever is a soccer event, his owner allows him to freely fly around the stadium.

Usually a regular presence in the stands, this time Pelé wanted to experience it from the pitch. “He is a free animal,” Bruna wrote. “He visits us frequently during training. Normally he watches everything from [behind the goal] … But yesterday he decided to see things from another angle.”

As about its decision to land on Bruna’s head, the player said that didn’t bothered her at all, but it was rather funny. “It was a really cool scene. It’s a privilege,” she said.
