10/11/06: Milo's Ranch is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that exclusively takes in and treats birds infected with PDD (Proventricular Dilatation Disease aka Macaw wasting). Since the summer of 2006, in repeated thefts, Milo's Ranch has had 10 PDD infected parrots stolen from our Loxahatchee, Florida facility.

Although Dr. Susan Clubb, our attending vet, closely monitors the treatment of our birds, there still is no cure for this contagious and fatal disease. This makes the thefts all the more disturbing. We assume the thief is selling them to unsuspecting breeders. Ten could potentially infect 1000's.

The stolen birds include Macaws: 2 Greenwings, 2 Blue & Gold, 1 Catalina; Cockatoos: 2 Rose-breasted, 1 Major Mitchell's; 1 male Eclectus, and 1 Nan-jen Conure. We are desparate to get our birds back to avoid further contamination of other facilities.

Any information leading to the return of these birds and/or arrest of the thief will be kept strictly confidential.

We can be reached at 954-249-7713 or info@milosranch.org. For more information, you can view a video clip of the local news report of the thefts here

11/18/98 - LOST, AZ - Pet Conure flew out the door in Tucson, Arizona. Description is lots of red, yellow, blue and green...owner unfamiliar with different types of conures, but sounds like a Sun Conure. Any information, please call Christina Becerra at 520-884-7783, or page her at 520-930-4222.

11/11/98 - FOUND, AZ - I got a call this morning from a guy who has a parrot in his tree outside. He said it's a pretty big green bird that talks with red on the bends of his wings. Sounds like an amazon. I haven't seen anyone on the lists missing one, but I just thought I'd spread the word around. We are trying to get someone over there to help catch the bird. Amber apuckett@DANCRIS.COM

UPDATE: Sybil and TJ went out this morning and managed to catch the amazon that was in the tree. They do not want to say what kind it is until they can find the owners. The bird is in isolation and although very hungry, seems healthy and not too badly affected by this ordeal. They were able to catch the bird by sitting on the ground and spreading a feast from TJ's feet to his knees and eventually the hungry bird came down and began to eat. They made no quick moves to "grab" the bird knowing that they had exactly one chance to get it right. From the time they left w/ the bird it took approx. one hour. Betsy

The lowlife thief had to have chased her bird as there were feathers laying in various parts of the house. And sadly, the rug, (where some feathers were also) was frayed where Aggie must have been trying her best to hold on with her beak. This is very upsetting as poor Aggie is probably terrified, if still alive. If you get any info, notice a new bird in a pet store that fits this etc., please let us know and we will forward.

I would urge those of you that live in California and frequent pet stores that sell exotics to notify the owners of this individual. If this individual is seen by anyone locally, you can give me email me privately, this way we can track his movements throughout California and possibly stop him or save parrots from an uncertain life!

4/7/98 - CA THEFT - Stolen female Eclectus Parrot from "Naturally Parrots", 19558 Ventura Blvd. Tarzana, CA. 91356. This very special bird was hatched by one of the breeder's pairs and handfed by the breeder's family. Like all female eclectus she is basically a red bird with a lavender chest who weighed 450 grams at time of theft. She also has a patch of green feathers on her head which is somewhat unusual for an eclectus. She has a silver AFA band on left foot with an identifying code of AFA CA JL 9724. The individual who stole her spent about 30 minutes in the shop, spoke to several other customers and bragged about his Hyacinth Macaw who he claimed to have purchased recently for $4500.00. The suspect also fits the description of a person who has stolen birds from other pet stores in the San Fernando Valley Region. Breeder/Owner is offering a generous REWARD for the return of this baby bird!!

They also had a little over 100 birds outside, everything from greys to sun conures. Well their birds survived the fire, but that night as the family had to make arrangement to stay some where else due to no home, someone during the night, stole over a 100 birds and killed a couple of the birds that they did not take.

7/31/98 - FOUND, FL - A *Beautiful* Blue and Gold Macaw. Very friendly and from the coloring it looks to be about 3 or 4 years old. AND, a Blue Front Amazon (female?). ALso very beautiful. Extremely tame and affectionate. Guessed to be around 2 or 3 years old. THese birds are obviously someone's pets. Unfortunately, I do not have the birds in my custody. The local bird store called me and asked me to post this. They had a couple in the store trying to sell these two birds. They went to three pet stores in town trying to sell the birds, and all three owners that they talked to said that there is no doubt that the birds are stolen. The police were called, but they did nothing and did not even go to the third store when the 2nd store owner reported they were on the way there!!! Anyway, it was a youngish couple (early 30's). They said they were from Tenn and were heading back that way. They were trying to sell the birds for $700 for the pair. The male is about 5'7", skinny, with jet black hair and dark eyes. The female is about 5'2" with reddish hair. She is about average weight. They are driving an older model ("piece of junk") Toyota Hatchback with dark tinted windows. I do not know if this will help anyone, but I thought it might narrow down a search for someone's pets. I did not meet the couple, but I have definitely 3 maybe 4 reliable people who did. All of this information was provided to me by my friend who owns the bird store. If any further information is needed, please feel free to contact me. Give me a little time though, I am behind on my email, but I will try to check for messages. Contact: Kori Hutson: myzoo@aug.com

6/20/98 - FOUND, FL - There is a very, very sweet and tame Orange Wing Amazon that has been found in Boca Raton. I met the couple who found the bird, they are taking the bird to the vet for checkups and are very affectionate with the bird. They know how to handle birds, this is obvious. They looked for ads in the paper for a lost bird and found nothing. They did not place an ad for a found bird. Again, this bird was clipped (incorrectly) and is very, very sweet. It appears to be healthy, in good feather and is very affectionate, snuggling with it's new owner's neck. If you know someone who lost an Orange-Wing Amazon in Boca Raton/Delray/Deerfield Beach area of South Florida, please let them know this bird is being well cared for and loved.

7/28/98 - FOUND, NH - Last night a neighbor brought a parrot to me that they found in a tree. He is at least twice the size of a cockatiel, perhaps like a mini-macaw. The majority of his body is dark green. His head is black, a very tiny bare/brown spot around the eye with a hint of white directly under the eye. After the black head there is a border of rust before his body turns green. He is in full flight. His primaries are dark cobalt blue as is his tale. His chest has a light blue similar to a quaker. He has orange pants. His cere is black. His beak is black. His feet are skin colored. We found him 20 miles north of Concord, NH. Since he's fully flighted, he could have come from just about anywhere. He ate fast and furiously, so that further tells me that he went some distance. He is tame. Understands the up command and mumbles a little. I think one of his words is "Pretty Bird." Contact: SBrusseau@FDIC.gov

10/3/98 - LOST, OR - It is so hard to write this, but my beautiful little TAG Pammie flew out the balcony door of my apartment this evening. I wrote a short time ago about how her bad wing clip is finally growing out and she is flying. I took her to the vet last week and she advised me to wait to clip her until more feathers have grown in. I was sure that Pammie would be safe, since the only way she could get out is through the balcony door which I rarely open. But tonight, I opened it for just a second to pick a tomato for dinner, she startled, and she was gone! And it's all because of my carelessness! I suspect she is in one of the tall elms in the park blocks in downtown Portland. Please keep us in your prayers. Caren and Paminaa (out in the cold and rain) carens@EARTHLINK.NET

3/26/98 - CANADA PET STORE - This morning, right after the store opened at 10, an Hispanic man, in his mid-20's was asked to put his smoke out as they don't allow smoking in the Yorkdale Mall or at P.J.'s Pet Centre. Then he went into the bird room and both he and a Triton 'too named Coco disappeared. Coco is in good feather, very friendly - will go to anybody; only nips when she gets over-excited. If you hold out your finger like a gun she will swing upside down and play dead hanging from your finger. Her band number is: RCH 9537 and she is also chipped = this is her chip number: 291B3093DC3B. The thief is 5' 10", slim build, clean shaven but with acne scars; has slicked back, short, wavy hair. He was wearing a black ski jacket and black jeans. Yorkdale Mall is in the west end of Toronto but the bird could end up anywhere.

SUNS, NANDAY, QUAKER: During July and Aug. of 1996, we had two H/F Sun Conures, and a H/F Nanday conure stolen from our store. Each was taken on a different day, while a different salesperson was working. This led us to make the purchase of, and installation of, a video system to watch the store. A few days after installation of this video system, we were hit again and a H/F Quaker parakeet was stolen, but this time we have pictures of the theft taking place. Although the pictures are not of the quality we would like, they should be good enough for prosecution if we could ID the perp. When we showed the video to a Sheriff's Deputy, he said, "My god, he put that bird in his shirt, and calmly walked out". The actions of both the thief and the woman are so obvious, that everyone who has seen the tape immediately knew that she was here to keep the salesperson busy in another part of the store while he stole the bird. Our store is in a small town, Rolla, Missouri, which is about halfway between St. Louis, and Springfield, Mo. codybird@rollanet.org
