Cash reward for missing parrot that loves Doritos and bald men

It’s not every day that an eccentric parrot goes missing in Carlisle...

But the owner of Rocky, a five-year-old African grey, is so determined to be reunited with her beloved pet that she’s offering a £200 reward to anybody who makes it happen.

The cheeky bird escaped after his owner Kizzie McLeod’s partner accidentally left the back door of their home in Baird Road, Harraby, open, early on Monday afternoon. The parrot was last seen gliding over the rooftops towards New Harraby.

“I’ve had Rocky for six months but I love him to bits,” said Kizzie, 27, who has recently finished a degree in social work. “The house is so quiet without him.

“I’d just gone out of the back door and into to the garden, and my partner Tony Lindsay had followed me out. I heard a loud squawk as Rocky slipped out of the door. I think he was looking for me. It was quite windy and I saw him go up really high, and fly off over the rooftops.

“I was shouting to him at the top of my voice.”

Anybody who does find Rocky will have little trouble identifying him – thanks to his unique personality.

Kizzie said: “He talks quite a bit – one of his favourite words is the name Jimmy.

“He says ‘Jimmy come here.’ He loves men – particularly any man with a bald head. He’s been known to swoop down and land on them.

“I think his first owner was a man called Jimmy, who I think was bald.

“Rocky’s favourite snack is Doritos tortilla chips, but at breakfast he has a cracker with butter on and at tea-time mashed potatoes.

“If somebody could ring me when they see him, I’d go out with a packet of Doritos and he’d probably come to me.

“If somebody does find him, I’d personally go round there and kiss them to death! Rocky is a unique personality and I miss him so much.”

Anybody who sees Rocky should contact Kizzie on Carlisle 527989.

How important are buses in this day and age anyway...?

If public transport is the future - why do councils insist on killing it off?

Very - for economy, environment and to prevent rural isolation.

They're not. Most people have cars.
