|(April 5, 2003) -- LBPD says someone stole a pet bird -- a macaw named "Tahoe" (believed similar to the photo of another macaw, right) -- from the owner's shoulder while the owner was walking down the street.
Tahoe, age 13, has a blue, yellow and green head. Yes, she answers to her name, "Tahoe."

This especially heartless theft took place in broad daylight -- 10:00 a.m. on April 4 -- in the area of Pacific Coast Highway and Lemon Ave. when the suspect allegedly ran up to the victim and snatched the bird off the owner's left arm.
The suspect is described as a 17-year old male Hispanic, about 5'2" tall with a thin build, wearing a green hat.
The bird is valued at roughly $2,000.
