OCEANSIDE, Calif. – A Temecula woman is reaching out to the public Tuesday to help find her $3,000 cockatoo that was stolen right off her shoulder.
Katie Aldrich was smoking outside the Haunted Head, a pirate bar in Oceanside, Monday evening when a man in a red Ford F150 pulled up and grabbed the Salmon-crested cockatoo from her.
The man jumped into his truck and pulled away, she said. Aldrich’s husband attempted to stop the driver, but was unsuccessful.
Anyone with information about the bird should contact the Oceanside Police Department.
