THE owner of two birds that were stolen in a break-in has made an appeal for their safe return.
A cockatiel and a red rosella were taken when thieves broke into an aviary at the owner’s home on the Fens estate in Hartlepool.
The owner, who does not wish to be named, has been left distressed by their theft and has appealed for the people who took them to return them.
He said: “Even if they were to just place them somewhere. I just want them back.”
The birds were taken overnight between Friday and Saturday.
