Have you seen Fred? Fred is an 8-year-old bright green macaw parrot and his owner Kellie Garrett said he has a big personality, is known for his screams and shares a very special bond. And now, someone stole him.
Garrett said Fred was stolen five days ago from her back porch, along with a 5-foot-tall bird stand. Garrett said stealing the bird and the stand couldn’t have been easy.
“It’s pretty scary that someone could just walk into my 6-foot privacy fenced-off area, into my backyard. They have some audacity to come up on my porch to take my bird and his stand,” Garrett said.”He capes me with his wing. Like, he wraps his wings around my head. He nuzzles me. Fred likes to scream and Fred calls me mom.” Oh no, feel my heart breaking for Kelly and Fred.
Fred has red feathers on his forehead, a gold underbelly and a distinct scream.
Garret she’s devastated and that her grandchildren have grown up with the bird for the past eight years.
“I have a lot of faith and a lot of hope. I know somebody somewhere has seen something,” Garrett said.
Anyone who has any information that can help bring Fred home can call the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
