Photograph caption dated July 31, 1962 reads, "That's the question a sad David Berge, 9353 Sylmar Ave., Van Nuys, would like someone to answer. A 'bird snatcher' stole David's 65 competition pigeons, including a potential national champion, from his home. The pigeons, valued at $225, were taken last week and have not been recovered."
