Police Hunt Percy And Pip African Grey Parrots

January 20th, 2011

Have you seen Percy – the bald-chested, angry parrot who talks a lot?

The African Grey Parrot was stolen with his pal Pip – who’s a little friendlier – from their home in Murston, Sittingbourne, on December 22.

They were taken between 9:30pm and 9:55pm from an aviary in the back garden of a house in Woodbury Drive, after offenders got through fencing.

Percy, who is partly bald after plucking his chest feathers out, is said to be vicious and liable to attack. Pip is nicer, and both are able to speak.

The thieves also took a parrot carrier, which is black metal and has a perch through the middle.

Anyone with information on the theft or the whereabouts of the birds is asked to contact police in Sittingbourne on 01795 419182 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting crime report number CY/20213/10.

African Grey Parrot Stolen From Seaside Holiday Home.

January 15th, 2011

Police are appealing for information after a pet parrot was stolen from a holiday apartment in Bridlington.

A man allegedly threatened a woman with a pair of scissors and kicked her in the knee, before stealing her large African grey parrot in South Marine Drive.

The thief demanded the animal in lieu for a debt the woman and her partner allegedly owed him on December 22 last year.

The bird, which has a grey body, a red tail and a black beak, talks and whistles and often says “Henry”.

A man and a woman have been voluntarily interviewed by police in connection with the theft.

Anyone with information can call police on 0845 6060222

African Grey Parrot Still On Loose Around Borough

January 13th, 2011

The owner of a parrot missing for more than three months says he has received multiple reports of sightings of his feathered friend.

Mark Walters, from Makepiece Road in Priestwood, has been hunting for his beloved African grey parrot Tootsie since she flew away in October.

Have you seen missing parrot?

Mark said he is sure Tootsie is still in the area and has been dashing to places where she has been spotted, however he has not managed to catch her.

He said: “I’ve had so many calls about her. She was spotted in Great Hollands, she’s been spotted near here and even near Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot.

“So she’s definitely about, but it’s a question of catching her.”

He added Tootsie has a distinctive call and can even whistle the theme tune to Clint Eastwood’s classic ‘The Good, The Bad and the Ugly’.

Anyone who thinks they have seen her can call Mark on 07957 612173.
