Friendly Sheriff’s Office Lets Man Pose With Pet Bird During Mug Shot

When Craig Buckner went to court on Monday in Oregon, he brought along his pet macaw—appropriately named Bird—because he thought his appearance would only take a little while. With Bird stashed in a tree outside, Buckner quickly realized the process was taking longer than he expected and began to worry about the well-being of his 4-year-old pet.

KOIN reports that kind-hearted Washington County deputies went to retrieve the macaw but were unsuccessful; apparently, Bucker had trained Bird to only leave the tree for his owner. So deputies escorted the 38-year-old outside to get his pet bird. After caring for Bird in the booking area—where the two took a memorable mugshot together—one of Buckner’s friends arrived to birdwatch while the deputies finished processing Buckner, who was in court because of a failure to appear on previous theft and drug charges.

“Our sheriff’s office has very strong core values of doing the right thing,” Deputy Shoana McKelvey, who cared for “Bird”, said in a press release, according to CBS News. “Mr. Buckner was already in a stressful position and did not need the additional stress and worry of his loved pet, Bird!”
