Pil­fered par­rot a ‘stuffed’ bird

New York Post - - NEWS - Joe Ta­copino

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.
