"Mango"
The Huntington Beach Police Department mentions on its Facebook page that it is looking for children approached by a man who wanted them to play with his parrot.

That is not a euphemism. Michael Joseph DeSilva, a 65-year-old Newport Beach sex offender, was arrested this past weekend for allegedly violating his probation by luring children to play with his bird "Mango" near busy Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway.

The agency already got one "hit" to its search for other possible victims in the comments to that posting.

"Around last summer, he let my daughter pet his parrot," writes a concerned parent.  "She was with her brother. She told me that she scare [sic] because he look at her weird way. She even remember [sic] his parrot's name was Mango. If he is a sex offender, he shouldn't be around kids."

Mango bit the boy's hand, adds the parent, who wonders if that was a message from the parrot to steer clear. "Maybe she was trying to warn them."

Earlier, around 4:15 p.m. Saturday, another resident contacted police about a "suspicious male" in the city-pier area. Responding officers talked to the man and discovered he was a registered sex offender. A call to DeSilva's probation officer then revealed that being around kids violates his parole.

DeSilva apparently told cops he was not around any children, but witnesses reported otherwise. He was taken to the Huntington Beach Police Department (HBPD) jail for booking.

Anyone else who knows about a man trying to get kids to play with his parrot is asked to contact the cop shop. Those who are not inclinced to use Facebook can call (714) 960-8825.

To use innocent pets for their evil doings is truly disgusting and I believe there are laws suitable for these wrong doings.

Folks, this man is not guilty of anything yet. Just because the police thinks he did something against the law is a long way from being found guilty of something. What is wrong with people anymore?

Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this case.

Once again, we bear witness to the tactics of a registered sex offender luring children to his side. While numerically and creatively infinite, the lures sexual offenders use on children, teens and even adults generally fall into the sixteen categories – the Pet Lure being one of them.

Over the past 35 years, Child Advocate Ken Wooden interviewed convicted sex offenders and abductors to uncover the diverse and imaginative strategies they use to groom and entrap their victims. While adults are primarily responsible for protecting children, the reality is that we can’t be with our children every moment of every day. Hence, it is essential that we teach them how to recognize and evade the lures that have been used for generations by sexual predators of every kind.

The age-old adage, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," was never more relevant. To learn more about child and teen lures prevention measures, we invite you to visit childluresprevention.com and teenluresprevention.com and contact Rosemary Webb or Jennifer Mitchell at 1-800-552-2197.
