A ten thousand dollar reward for a missing parrot sent social media in frenzy.
Users widely circulated the poster of the lost bird named ‘Alpha’ which promised a hefty reward to anyone who found it.
Alpha went missing on Saturday around the Western Road area. The owner said the poster was “a cry for help for our family member.”
Though the bird was later found on Sunday afternoon, it made for a humorous social media post.
Jamal Smith said, “Ten thousand dollars? I will dye one seagull.”
Philip Darville said, “[I’m] about to dress this pigeon up right now.”
Waynette Sherman said, “Ten thousand dollars. Let me get my bearings together and look for Alpha. These children better eat McDonald’s or Kentucky today.”
Laverne Herman responds, “…never knew that bird watching was going to be one of the hobbies that I picked up during the pandemic, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.”
The owner later captured the bird and thanked social media users for helping to search for it.
