BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - An African Gray parrot is being summoned
to court in South Florida.
The bird is at the center of a dispute between two owners.
Angela Colicheski, 52, named the bird Tequila when she bought
him 13 years ago.
The bird flew away three years ago and ended up in the home of Sarita Lytell. She named the bird Lucky.
The two women met by chance at a Dunkin' Donuts and discovered
their love for feathered friends. When Colicheski realized the other woman had her bird, she asked for it back.
Lytell says she looked for the bird's owner when she found it,
but after three years is now too attached.
Colicheski filed a lawsuit in February.
The judge ordered the bird in court Monday.
