Thirteen 12-week-old African Grey parrots went missing overnight from a house in Welkom.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Puleng Motsoeneng said the parrots, valued at R25?000, went missing from a house in Jasons Street, Riebeeckstad.

Motsoeneng said the birds’ owner went to bed on Monday night with the parrots allegedly still in their cages in the garage.

“The next morning at about 5.30am the complainant was preparing to go to Bethlehem to deliver the parrots when he noticed that one cage was empty and the 13 African Grey parrots were missing.”

Motsoeneng urged the community to assist the police with any information on the incident.

Anyone with information should contact investigating officer Detective Warrant Officer Lorette van Rooyen at 057 391 6279.
