It was a classic whodunnit. In August 2010, on the night before the big show, Cornish budgie breeder Andrew Pooley discovered his aviary had been raided. His prize-winning birds had been stolen, and his champion budgie Penmead Pride killed. This film follows Britain’s leading pet detectives as they investigate an epidemic of pet crime across Britain, including Cornwall’s ‘murder in the aviary’ mystery.
