Australian cockatoo stolen in raid on pet shop
An Australian Cockatoo has been stolen during a break-in at a Stockton pet shop.
Officers are now appealing for information after the nine-year-old, called Rosie, was taken from Pet Mania.
A member of the public was walking past the Portrack Lane shop at 6.45pm on Sunday when he saw two or three men, described as in their mid-20s and one with a facial tattoo, holding the bird outside the store.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “It is not yet clear if anything else was stolen during the break-in but all other animals appear to be accounted for.”
