Have you seen these missing parrots?
TWO parrots which would have sold for £4,000 have been stolen from The Pet Shop in Shirehampton.
At 11.40pm on November 26, two white men were captured on the shop's CCTV as they broke through the front door of the store at 26 Station Road.
Police have said the white van they arrived in looked like a Vauxhall Vivaro and had stolen number plates. The plates have since been discovered, but the birds are still missing.
The Pet Shop is a family business, run by 53-year-old Tim Florey and his 33-year-old son Jonathan. They were very familiar with the birds as they raised them by hand.

Rosie, a three-year-old pink Gala parrot, is easy to identify because she often repeats the phrases "give us a kiss" and "kiss, kiss, kiss".
Henry, a four-year-old white Tritron Cockatroo, can say the words "hello Charlie" and "good morning".
The birds were both relatively young as parrots can live 70 to 80 years.
The Pet Shop has been targeted by criminals before. As previously reported, the shop suffered a suspected arson attack in January.
At the time, Mr Florey estimated there was about £30,000 worth of damage to stock. His stock was uninsured on the night of the recent burglary.
He said: "We've had to pay out of our own pockets. The birds were a bit like the shop's pets because we never expected to sell them."
Anyone who has information about the crime, or sees the missing birds, should phone Avon and Somerset police on 101.
