Randy rare parrot gets a government job (Video)

275x250.jpgA rare parrot, which tried to mate with the head of a wildlife presenter on a Stephen Fry TV show, has been given a government job in New Zealand.

Sirocco, a fat, flightless Kakapo shot to fame last year when - during the BBC show Last Chance To See - it hopped onto the head of a zoologist.

As host Stephen Fry watched on, the bird then proceed to bonk the back of Mark Carwadine's head. Prompting Fry to say: "This is one of the funniest things I have ever seen."

But now New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key has named Sirocco - one of just 124 kakapo still alive - a national conservation ambassador.

His role will be to help draw attention to the wildlife of New Zealand… hopefully not by trying to shag it all. After all, he hasn't got the job as Russell Brand.
