PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A cockatoo named Charlie was stolen from a shop on Southeast Division Street Thursday afternoon.
Portland police said a 35-40-year-old white man stole the bird from Bird Hut before 3:45 p.m. The suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans. He has medium length greasy black hair and was carrying a two-pouched light-colored backpack.
The Rose Breasted Cockatoo is only 3 months old and is still bottle-fed. The owners believe it won’t survive more than a few days outside of their care.
The bird is valued at $2,200.
