U.S. woman arrested for stealing $2,000 worth rare parrot

A woman has been arrested for padding her bra with a stolen rare parrot. Jill Knispel, 35, is facing felony charges after hiding a Greenwing parrot in her bra and stealing it from her employer, Baby Exotic Birds, police said.

Knispel stole the bird so she could trade it for a vintage 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia automobile. She couldn't resist telling the car's owner how she got the animal, according to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Turns out the car's owner is friends with the man who owns the $2,000 (Ђ1,690) bird.

DNA tests confirmed the bird's identity and Knispel was charged Saturday with grand theft, the AP reports.

"The circumstances of the case are the most bizarre I've ever encountered," said veteran wildlife investigator Lenny Barshinger.
