A story that appeared in the April 1 Evening Sun failed to make clear that Marian Scarinzi's lawsuit against Docktor Pet Center at White Marsh Mall seeks damages resulting from an illness she says she contracted from a parakeet bought at the store. The Evening Sun regrets the error.
How much would you pay for a dead parakeet?
A Rossville woman, who contends her colorful pet bird dropped dead prematurely, says it's worth $100,000. She has filed suit against the pet store that sold it to her.
Marian Scarinzi doesn't want to talk about the death of her parakeet, but, in the suit filed March 20 in Baltimore County Circuit Court, she charges that she suffered physical pain and emotional anguish caused by its death.
