Have you seen my Skippy?

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

Skippy be­cause he does a lit­tle dance around peo­ple’s legs.

Orig­i­nally the cou­ple had three cock­erels but when they get older they tend to fight and they had to find other homes for two of them. Now it is just Molly, Golly and Skippy the cock­erel. He is a friendly bird and while he struts about as if he owns the place, Ann said he is happy to snug­gle up with his own­ers.

But he doesn’t take kindly to strangers, act­ing as a guard cock­erel and reg­u­larly fright­en­ing vis­i­tors away.

But he has now been miss­ing for a week and Ann, who works at an in­sur­ance firm, is grow­ing in­creas­ingly wor­ried.

She said: “I came home from work on Thurs­day evening and they had all put them­selves to bed.

“But when they didn’t rise on Mon­day I grew wor­ried and even­tu­ally phoned the po­lice.

“Who­ever took him was brave be­cause he can be like a rot­tweiler. But he was lovely with us. He used to rest his head on my shoul­der.” Ann is now of­fer­ing a cash re­ward for any in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to his safe re­turn.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Cam­bridgeshire po­lice on 101.

A spokesman for the force said: “We re­ceived re­ports of a cock­erel go­ing miss­ing from a gar­den in Papyrus Way, Sawtry, on De­cem­ber 9.

“I would urge any­one with any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent to call po­lice on 101.”
