Police are investigating the theft of a feathered friend at a Bedford pet store.

Around 7 p.m. on Monday, Halifax Regional Police say two men walked into the Pets Unlimited in the Bedford Commons, and one walked out with a parrot.

Police say one of the men kept staff busy while the other entered the parrot enclosure and took the parrot. When staff tried to stop the suspect from taking the bird, police say they were blocked by the second man.

A post on Kijiji that allegedly shows someone walking out of the pet store with a parrot in hand says the bird is a blue front Amazon named Schooner worth about $2,000.

“We miss Schooner desperately and are worried sick. Please keep your eyes and ears open and SHARE,” the post reads.

Police describe one suspect as a man between the ages of 30 and 35, with short brown hair and a full dark brown beard. He was wearing a black hooded sweat shirt with JUGGALO written in red on the front.

The other man is described as being between the ages of 40 and 45, about 200 pounds, with short grey hair. He was a wearing a light blue T-shirt and black vest.
