Paulie wants a cracker

Though the bird has been found and returned to his owner, Nimbin police are still investigating the theft of a macaw last week.

‘Paulie’ , a 13-month-old macaw,  was stolen from a home on Cullen Street Nimbin between 1pm and 5pm last Thursday. Paulie has his right wing clipped and answers to his name.

He is valued at at least $10,000 but police said more importantly, he is a much loved pet; the owner is devastated by Paulie’s theft as they were close companions.

Paulie can say ‘Who’s a pretty blue chicken?’. He cannot fly but can hop around.

Paulie was located at 1pm on Saturday in Nimbin and was returned to his very grateful human.

Investigations are continuing, Nimbin police are asking for any information about the abduction of Paulie. If you know anything at all please call Nimbin police on (02) 66891244 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000. Police reference is E71459313 #NimbinCrime

    Stealing a bird from the wild from the South American continent cutting the wing and then putting a price on him/her is also a pretty awful thing to do
