Stolen Parrot Found At Kilgore Home

She's back. A $1,300 bird, stolen from an East Texas pet store more than a month ago, is found today inside a Kilgore home.

Dixie is an Electus parrot and a personal pet at the Wet Pets and Critters store in Longview. In August, surveillance video captured a middle aged woman, hiding the bird under her shawl and walking out of the store with it.

The store's owner says a tip led police to a woman's home in Kilgore where they found the bird. Police plan on pressing charges.
