STARING INTO THE SKY CRYING “WHY” AND THEN GETTING SHAT ON, POINT LOMA — The remorseless killer of the wild ring-faced conures that have graced the early daylight hours of Ocean Beach, Point Loma and other San Diego neighborhoods with their croaking squawks for decades claimed another victim this week. Despite a $5,000 reward offered by PETA to ensure that there were never any more “burders” of this kind, a sixth body was discovered late yesterday afternoon on Poe Street.

Based on a tip from SoCal Parrot’s Brooke Dunham, San Diego Birdicde Detective Robin Crane issued a statement saying, "we suspect we’ve got a juvenile shooter on our hands. Ballistics indicate that he uses a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. The onset of the killings, which began in mid-February, suggest that he may have received it as a Christmas present, then honed his aim over the following weeks. Horrifically but also impressively, he shoots their eyes out."
