Cocky wants $600

07 December 2015


HEALESVILLE’S most iconic feathered resident is facing an expensive rent bill or eviction, after living in his current home for almost a decade.

Charlie the sulphur-crested cockatoo has been a fixture on the Healesville main road for about seven years in his home outside Healesville Stockfeed.

On Wednesday 2 December, Charlie’s owner and owner of the stockfeed store, Catherine Crow, received a letter from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) saying she would need to pay $600 a year to keep Charlie on the premises or remove him from public display.
