A blue-throated Amazon parrot called Chelsea, who screeches whenever anyone mentions Manchester United, has been stolen from his cage.
The blue-throated Amazon parrot called Chelsea was stolen
Chelsea was taken from a garden in North Street in Mears Ashby, Northamptonshire, early on Tuesday.
A car belonging to the parrot's owners was also broken into.
Police say Chelsea is able to tell people his name and delivers a high-pitched squawk if Manchester United are mentioned within earshot.
It is believed the thief removed the bird in a towel stolen from the washing line.
The parrot's owner Richard Threadgold said he thought the bird, which had cost him £600, may have been stolen to order.
