Angry My dad's parrots stolen

Hi Everyone, I hope you can spread these two videos around. My dad lost his mother to cancer and since then (with no one being home all day) has had some of his parrots stolen twice (African Greys and Rosellas). This time it was captured on video. Please share this! We need to find these people. This happened in Long Beach, CA of 5/4/15 at around 1pm. These people won't hesitate to steal your beloved pets either. You can see in the first video that one of the parrots is injured because it is a flighted bird and it tries to get away and can't. It is heartbreaking for me to watch.

What utterly revolting human beings! Were they rosellas that were stolen that time? I couldn't quite see. People never fail to make me sick. They even broke the door off the aviary just to get in! How is your dad? I imagine he's very shook up

I copy and pasted the video on my Facebook and told everyone where and when it happened. Im praying for restoration. So sorry this happened. Especially at such a hard time.

This is a nightmare.
Have you been to the police office with the videos?
It's heartbreaking how rude these monsters treat your dad's parrots.
They should go into prison because of this ugly deed.

Very good, those criminals will have problems to sell the parrots.
Hope so much that someone recognizes them and calls the police.
Recently on German TV there was a docu about Orange County Jail, that would be the right place for them to go.

The police haven't been very helpful and my dad is so stubborn, trying to do what I can but it is very frustrating for me. My dad told me today that the crimsons were on eggs that were set to hatch any minute. So if course they have now died

This breaks my heart. I'm so sorry this happened. You guys are probably devastated. I feel bad for the birds they stole too.

It is heartbreaking. I don't Even know what to say it's so horrible.
I hope these people get caught soon.

The people have been stealing a whole bunch of birds around here... Suspected to be the same people i should say. The one guy got into a car chase with police then abandoned the truck and took off on foot. The truck was impounded and they lost the guy. All guys have been identified and warrants issued for felonies.
