ALLENTOWN, Pa. – A Pennsylvania pet store is searching for more than a dozen exotic birds that were swiped from the shop.
Employees at Bird Mania say 15 baby birds were stolen Tuesday night from the Salisbury Township store near Allentown when burglars broke in through a bathroom window.
The colorful birds include parakeets and conures, a kind of parrot. They're valued at about $9,000 total.
Workers say they're worried about the baby birds' health. The birds are still hand-fed and could die quickly.
Some of the birds already had been sold but were being kept at the shop until they were weaned.
