SPOKANE-- Someone broke into a north Spokane bird store overnight and stole at 25-year-old bird.

The owner says he doesn’t know why the burglar chose this specific bird.

The pet is a green parrot named Leah.

She wasn’t the most expensive bird in the store, although her cage may have been the easiest to open.

The owner, Mark Settle, says overnight a burglar busted out the glass to the front door and tired to get into two bird cages.

Leah was stolen, and the cages were damaged.

Settle is worried whoever took the 25-year-old bird won’t be able to properly take care of her, especially in this weather.

Settle says the bird will not live long outdoors, and if the bird is not treated well, it won’t live at all indoors.

Settle is trying to get the word out to other pet stores and veterinarians in case someone tries to sell the bird.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
