A baby bird named Kiko, a member of the genus Paniscus, died in the Philippines last week, but the cause of death has not been determined.
Kiko died on June 19 after being captured by a fisherman on a fishing boat near Cebu island, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the Philippine capital.
The bird was reportedly a virgin.
The Associated Press reported that a man on board the fishing boat spotted Kiko and called police, but no one could identify her or provide the man’s name.
The Philippine Coast Guard and the National Police Service of the Philippines were initially called in to rescue Kiko.
The National Police said that the crew of the fishing vessel found her in a tree near Cibao Island.
The AP said that police found Kiko’s body in a shallow, muddy grave, with her wings and legs missing.
Kiko was believed to have been between two and six months old when she died.
