Cathays, Cardiff – According to news reports, two men broke into the home of a 78-year-old woman in Cardiff and stole approximately £150. After being threatened and locked in her own home, the woman was forced to watch one of the men snap the neck of her beloved budgerigar, George.

PETA is offering up to £1,000 as a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible.

“Someone knows who these louts are and can stop them in their tracks,” says PETA spokesperson Suzanne Barnard. “Animal abusers are cowards who take their issues out on the most defenceless beings available.”

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
