Original Post

This wll probably get moved to Etc but I thought I'd post here anyway.

I came home today after spending the night at my boyfriends house, to find my 3 cockatiels murdered. Someone had come onto my screened in porch, breaking the door and screen, and opened their cage, ripped their heads off and left them there for me to find. I've already filed a sheriffs report, no fingerprints. Its 3 felony charges and one burglery, and my birds of over 15 years are dead. I've contacted the local paper to see if the reporter who handles stories like this can help with getting a reward for information fund started since I just don't have much to offer.

I'm obviously in shock and tears now, and later I have the task of removing the bodies and burying them, but first I'm going to the gun store that the reported suggested to me. I no longer feel safe in my home.

Sorry for the sad post but I just had to tell someone.

OMG... I am so, so sorry!

My ferrets used to live outside, and I know I always had a heavy lock on the door... but I knew that anyone determined to do so could just as easily climb over the large gate and cut open the wire.

I decided to move them back in when it became a real threat due to some insane ferret owner suing me... she has done some crazy things in the past and is mentally unhinged, and I was just worried that she might steal them...

I hope they find who did that... :(
