We can classify this incident as one of those that you certainly don't see everyday! A local resident came to the police station last week to report finding a bird, hoping that perhaps the owner had reported the winged creature as missing. The resident rescued the bird after it flew into his apartment while being chased by a cat. The resident felt that the bird, a parrot, was domesticated and purchased a cage and food to maintain the guest until the owner could possibly be found. The bird was found near Live Oak Avenue and Sixth Avenue.
If you have recently had your bird fly the coop and feel that this bird may belong to your home, give APD a call at (626) 574-5160. Local Animal Control has not received local missing bird reports to date.
