Hi Everyone, I hope you can spread these two videos around. My dad lost his mother to cancer and since then (with no one being home all day) has had some of his parrots stolen twice (African Greys and Rosellas). This time it was captured on video. Please share this! We need to find these people. This happened in Long Beach, CA of 5/4/15 at around 1pm. These people won't hesitate to steal your beloved pets either. You can see in the first video that one of the parrots is injured because it is a flighted bird and it tries to get away and can't. It is heartbreaking for me to watch.

I feel the same way, I have been shaking all day after seeing these. Thank you. Please share the videos, you'd be surprised how these things work. It will still help the word spread.

My

There is a lot of info that the police can gather from the video. particularly when the guy takes his hat off. They could focus on the area and get a picture of his face. It is such a shame and pain in the heart. the videos would be good on a TV clip showing the face on a news program. Would probably bring a lot of info. could he have been a workman in the area or an employee where your father purchased the birds. There may be a gang that sources birds, the way plants or cars are stolen and placed. Prayers for safe recovery. There are a lot of breeders in California and this is bad for business let alone a beloved pet. Please keep us informed.:argh::whois::spy: Blessings, Jo Ann

I'm sorry, I couldn't watch it after these comments here, but I watched about the first minute and if you pause it at around 35 seconds you can see the license plate pretty clearly on the front bumper. I would definitely take this to the police asap and they can at least maybe get a search warrant or something. I'm so sorry that this has happened to your family :( people are just sick

Yes thank you all. It is very heartbreaking how they were treated and obviously at least one was hurt. The police are looking into it and it was on the news, my dad refused an interview by two news stations.

I am going to forego watching the video's too...just don't want to feel any angrier right now than I am after just reading this. With a license plate number available to police, this should be able to be solved. Prayer's for your dad and his bird's safe return...
