If you and a friend found a valuable creature loose in your suburb how would you find its rightful owner?

YOU KNOW THE RIGHT THING TO DO IS GET IT BACK TO THE OWNER - but how do you avoid the "I see $ sign cons?"

Surprised no one suggested the local Vet be asked to check for a microchip. This has been done.

Valuable "creature", what are we taking about here, a unicorn or perhaps a Tasmanian tiger?
Mrs said 3 weeks ago
A large and not too common Parrot. The law requires that they are licenced, but not that they be microchipped or DNA registered. How can you identify one from the other? As a licensed aviculturist from a family of licensed aviculturists this is not the first time I have come across the problem of identification of expensive birds.

If it is that valuable, it is registered somewhere. If you do not know who to contact, first call would be to make it comfortable, then call the police/authorities. Absolute proof of ownership should be provided.

By law it must be licenced, but not all are. The authorities have been contacted but there is a lockdown in place so no one can interact in person, just by phone. 2 claimants completely different behaviour. Specialist diet required so not taking risks with "cons" - fortunately background is one that involves similar creatures. So difficult - but determined to do right.

I wouldn’t be happy knowing that someone is missing their beloved pet
Mrs said 4 weeks ago
Exactly - but would also be upset finding that it had gone to a "con" So need to ask the person claiming it to show photos of the pet - preferably with them and pet in the same photo - so easy to "borrow" a general photo off the internet.
