PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is on the lookout for a bird named Benny.
Benny is an African Senegal Parrot who was apparently stolen from his cage in the 1100 Block of Hatteras Circle in Greenacres. As birds have wings and can fly, we are reporting this to our South Palm Beach County readers in case Benny escaped to Boca Raton, Delray Beach or Boynton Beach.
Benny is green and orange, appears to have a fuzzy belly, and possibly answers to the name “Benny.”
Benny is 21 years old. The alleged theft took place on October 12 around 3 a.m. Police say suspect entered the backyard of the residence and took the parrot out of his cage.
We’re not kidding when we write the following provided to us by police: “Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Benny is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.”
