NZ parrot robs tourist

world Updated: Feb 04, 2013 23:50 IST

A mischievous keaparrot robbed a tourist of hundreds of dollars in New Zealand, dashing away after stealing the money from his campervan.

Peter Leach, a visitor from Glasgow, Scotland, stopped at Arthur's Pass to take in the views at a rest area along State Highway 73. He left the windows down as he snapped photos.

"A Canadian couple walked by and said: 'We've just seen that bird take something out of your campervan'," Leach laughed. "It took all the money I had. I was left with $40 in my pocket," he said.
