Did your pretty little birdie just up and fly away?

Police in Stafford Township may have it!

Police in Stafford Township have posted the following on Facebook:

The post fails to mention, though, just how police came in possession of the above mentioned bird. Did someone catch it? Did it walk up to a police officer and tweet for help? Dear Stafford Township Police: This would be helpful information!

There may be some clues in comments from people who have responded to the facebook post:

- "Aww yay I’m happy that they finally caught him. I hope they find his family or a new loving family."

- "So glad he was caught! Hope his owner is found."

Why are these people happy that he was caught? Was he causing problems at the playground - you know, other than birds-pooping-on-kids-heads problems?

Oh, yeah... the cage is pretty nice. Was he caught IN that cage? I find it's much easier to catch birds already in cages.
