    Bullets, beer and bird at funeral; mourners missing

    Elmhurst, Chicago police responding to reports of shots fired in Mount Emblem cemetery following a funeral discovered:

    35 bullet casings
    A baseball cap
    Empty beer cans

    And a little white bird in a cage.

    Those attending the funeral had all disappeared though.

    "It may be that the person who died liked birds," Deputy Police Chief Jim Kveton said. The little bird was taken to a shelter.

    I agree newone, it was lazy reporting to not at least tell us what type of bird it was. I feel sorry for birds in cages, they don't have enough space to move around. Large aviaries are alright, they give birds enough room to fly around. I hope the shelter the bird was taken to had a large aviary.

    To people who have macaws, an African Grey would be small! ...... Zebra Finch now that would be small -- silly reporter.
