Pilfered parrot a ‘stuffed’ bird
A man poached a parrot from a Petland store in Brooklyn by stuffing the bird into his pocket when no one was looking and walking out, cops said.
The thief is seen on video cramming the blue Quaker parrot into a plastic bag at the shop on Graham Avenue in Williamsburg Tuesday before hiding it in his pocket, according to police.
Quaker parrots tend to be active and can mimic human speech.
The bird is estimated to be worth hundreds of dollars.
Cops were still searching for the parrot-napper on Thursday night.
