Ostrich Feather Thefts in South Africa

Press reports from South Africa this week are reporting the theft of feathers with the perpetrators caught on Monday (8th April, 2013).   These thefts are not from the manufacturers, but directly from the live birds in their pens – birds from the Research Farm in Oudtshoorn are reported as a major target, with several birds killed. The thieves were caught and appeared in court on Wednesday (10th April).  You can read one of a number of press reports of the thefts here.
