Richmond: On August 10th, a man walked into Ackroyd Pets and Aquariums in Richmond, grabbed a Parakeet named Sky, stuffed him into a black shopping bag, then ran out of the store. RCMP is requesting the public’s help in locating the stolen Parakeet.
Sky is a 1 year old male Indian Ringneck Parakeet, with a value of $700. He is approximately 18-20″ long including a lengthy tail, and powder blue in color with a red beak. Sky has certification papers and a metal ringband on one of his legs.
“Sky is an exotic bird described as sweet and friendly by the pet store staff, he won’t survive if released or if he escapes,” says Corporal Stephanie Ashton of Richmond RCMP.
