A family from Tumakuru’s Jayanagar locality has announced a cash reward of Rs 50,000 to anyone who can find their missing parrot.


Animal activist Ravi who owns the parrot named ‘Rustuma’ said that his family is very attached to the bird and are deeply pained after it went missing on July 16. Rustuma is one of the African grey parrots nursed by Ravi’s family.

The family stuck posters, and launched hunts in the surrounding areas for the bird and have urged people to let them know in case they sight it in their surroundings, balconies, terraces

“By mistake it has flown away. I request the people here to observe their surroundings in balconies, terraces and on the branches of trees. It cannot go far. I request everyone to give information or if anyone returns the bird they will be given Rs 50,000 cash on the spot,” Ravi told news agency IANS.

“I have been associated with animal rights organisations. Me and my family share a special bond with the parrot,” he said. “We have been missing it very much. We have spent wonderful times with the bird,” he added.


The family celebrated the birthday of the two parrots every year grandly. The bonding of the family with the parrot and their endeavour to discover and get back the lost parrot has moved people and animal lovers in the state.
