Re: Absolutely TERRIBLE “instructional” video on wing clipping!

That video disgusts me. it's amazing how anyone can rationalize anything to make things easier for themselves while avoiding all those pesky feelings of guilt. A one-sided clip only serves the purpose of traumatizing a bird to the point that the very idea of taking flight terrifies them beyond their instinctive desire to do so. Essentially, it's birthing a phobia in the poor bird's psyche.

One sided clipping, cutting all the primaries, clipping before the bird has fledged... it's like she was ticking off boxes on all the wrong things to do! All she left out was turning on a ceiling fan and leaving the toilet lids open whenever your bird is out and about! Ridiculous!
