The Trail Of The Lonesome Cockatiels

by | 25th, February 2004

‘WHEN a man in the Salisbury area had his aviary of 12 cockatiels raided he feared he would never see his beloved birds again.

Luckily for him, the birds had developed the habit of whistling the Laurel and Hardy theme tune.

Police asked the local populace to keep their ears open, and when a member of the public heard such a noise coming from a house he knew what to do.

He called the police and as a result eight of the birds have now been reunited with their owner and a 33-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of theft.

The remaining fours birds are feared to be in a fine mess.’
