Two birds worth $30,000 each have been stolen in a burglary at a home in Melbourne’s south-east, with police on the hunt for the thieves.
The valuable scarlet macaws, named Bubba and Pippa, were stolen late last month after the burglars broke into Frankston home through the front door while the owner wasn’t there.
They belonged to the woman’s late father and have a highly sentimental value, police said.
Both birds have their flight feathers clipped.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
