A woman in the United Kingdom, was left red faced for reporting a trapped bird after hearing the noise of a smoke alarm with a low battery.

Ossett police said that officers from the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) were called to the woman’s home after she reported a beeping sound that sounded like a bird in distress.

Officer Alan Farr said that he and his colleagues went over to the woman’s home and searched her roof for several hours.

After being unable to find the trapped bird, Farr went into one of the bedroom in the home and noticed that the beeping sound was coming from the smoke alarm.

The device sounded like bird in distress as the battery was low.

The woman who was embarrassed by the ordeal, apologized to the officers and they left.
