Police in Pa. search for Chinese-food eating burglar


Eating Chinese takeout in front of a glowing fireplace is a pleasant enough way to spend an evening.

But state police in northwestern Pennsylvania say there was just one problem with those plans: The person or persons who made the fire and ate the food didn’t live in the residence.

Instead, troopers from Franklin say it appears someone kicked in the door of a home in Oil Creek Township before making themselves at home.

Police haven’t identified or arrested any suspects but say the incident took place sometime between Oct. 17 and 24.

The scene of the comfortable crime is about 85 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Foul-mouthed parrot seeks new home in United Kingdom


Everyone has a few faults. In Beaky’s case, he swears (a lot) and he bites.

Not good qualities for a parrot seeking a new home.

Still, honesty is the best policy, so the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has decided to come clean about his shortcomings.

Supervisor Angelina Lusher said Wednesday that anyone who takes Beaky in will have to put up with some rude language. The agency also says he tends to bite people until he bonds with them.

Beaky is a chattering lory who will be given only to new owners with experience handling exotic birds.

Lusher says Beaky needs interaction with people or other birds to have a fulfilling life.
