A sneaky parrot in the Netherlands lost his temper after getting caught red-handed trying to steal a mini custard éclair straight from the packet.

Stewie, a five-year-old male eclectus, pecked angrily at the empty side of the packet after his owner Dave Piersma, 26, scolded him for trying to take the snack.

Dave said: “It was so unexpected.”

Dave doesn’t allow Stewie to eat sweets and prefers to give him healthy food, such as pellets, fruits and nuts.

“He’s sometimes clever and fast enough to steal something from us without us noticing.”
