Bird-napper on the loose in Richmond

Police say Sky – a one year old Indian Ringneck Parakeet – was taken from Ackroyd Pets and Aquariums over the weekend. Corporal Stephanie Ashton says employees were shocked when they realized what was happening.

“Sky is a really sweet bird. Very sweet, very sociable — will sit on your hand — so when he grabbed Sky it was just a shock to them because it happened so quickly and the bird didn’t react and he was gone before they could stop him so they called police right away.”

Employees had never seen the man before. He is described as having a heavy build, in his 30s-40s and wears glasses.

RCMP say their main concern is if Sky is released or escapes he will not survive. If you see this man you are asked to call police immediately.
