Employees of a south-end pet store are looking for help in finding a parrot they believe was stolen from the store Friday night.

Bonnie Brissette from Petland told CTV News that a young woman was playing with the Jardine parrot when she stuffed the bird into her handbag and walked out of the store.

The girl is described as white, around five feet five inches (164.4 centimetres) tall. The girl was wearing a black hoodie, black toque and jeans.
