    I am just so P.O'd right now! [​IMG] Someone stole one of our Local Feed stores Blue and Gold Macaw!! He was their "mascot" for almost 20 years or so! Someone came through the roof to get him! It showed the inside of the store on the new tonight and the owner pointed out how her baby put up a fight because of all the feathers everywhere.... Poor baby, I am sure he misses his owner right now and is probably scared to death... If anyone see's a suspicious sale around TX for a B&G macaw please let someone know! In fact, you could probably call the store if you have a tip! Just google San Antonio Feed stores and its Called WestSide Feed and Pet Shop... This has me boiling tonight..... [​IMG]

    I hope someone gives them a good tip and the poor macaw can return to his rightful owner. So sorry to hear about this.

    He might not have been stolen to sell. Someone might have stolen him for themselves due to the expense of buying one.
    I hate thieves. They tried to break in our local feed store last week, along with 4 other places but didn't expect to find alarms in our little town.

    I also have to suspect all those people who would look at this as a "rescue". Stealing is stealing.

    I hope they find who did it and get the bird back safe and sound.

    We had a cockatoo stolen from a local store last year. A teen with a big coat in the winter walked past the bird, who was out in the open on his stand by the register as he is everyday, and shoved him into his coat and ran out of the store and got in a truck that was waiting. They never found the bird, I suspect that particular case the bird was for the person to keep not to sell. It is so horrible to think of the terror those poor birds must feel to be stolen and kept by strange people that may not even know how to properly care for them. So sad!!

    If the person did still it for himself, he will soon learn the hard way that birds bond to one person in life....I really hope that bird bites him BIG time! Another sad thing is, when he learns how "mean" this bird is...the bird will probably live a caged life now if he keep it....I really hope they find "Blue"...
