"Ontario County Sheriff's is looking for your help in returning a stolen bird to Country Max."

So, are we supposed to guess WHICH Country Max store in Ontario County was victimized?

P.S. And correct your syntax errors while you're at it.

Sue's right on all counts. In addition, "Sheriff's"?(No apostrophe in plurals...) Pretty basic errors here for professional writers.
Amateurish writing, sometimes shaky ethics in acquiring or creating news stories--I guess it illustrates how hungry the media is for news and how hurried they are to get it out.

Poor reporting aside, bird probably flew the coop. Non-story. Move along.

Okay and did they just notice the bird was missing when they did inventory?

Maybe it's dead in the store someplace.

This is the Farmington location near Rte 332. WOW!!!

Missing for almost two weeks.

It's obvious that most of you who post on here don't have much of a life. What's the big deal if the syntax errors are there, the story is a bird is missing. Yes, I realize they are supposed to be professional but crap happens, lets concentrate on the story. I am concerned about the bird, but then I'm a bird lover, not an English major. I am sure you can bash my errors as well but I realize the problems that go with the bird not being cared for correctly! Sorry this is not said to put anyone down or to be disrespectful but if you don't care about the topic don't post!!
