OK all you ravens and crows, you have had your reputation for theft upstaged by a parrot. But who the heck leaves that much money on the dash in a
drawstring bag and then leaves the window rolled down.
A thief stole hundreds of dollars from Peter Leach's campervan, but left no fingerprints - because the thief has no fingers.
He left the windows down as he snapped photos of the scenery, including one of an unusual bird on the ground near his vehicle. Little did he know
he'd become a target for the local criminal element.
The unsuspecting tourist had stashed his travel cash - about $NZ1300 (about $A1100) - in a small cloth drawstring bag and left it on the
dashboard, where the bird apparently found it while rummaging through other items.
The kea grabbed the bag and made a clean aerial getaway.
