The very act of taking the extra step to place this bird in a tied off plastic bag, dropped off hours before staff would arrive, makes me think this woman got some kind of thrill from the thought of an animal in a terrible state (so young and all that plucking?!) who died under horrific circumstances being discovered by workers. Someone who lacked empathy and just didn't care wouldn't have taken the extra step of bagging it and would have simply turned it loose to nature or dumped it in the carrier. Sick sick sick. This woman needs to be found and kept an eye on.

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

I won't say what I think of the human. But the bird, not eating ... how much you want to bet that it is grieving for its evil owner and feeling lost? I hope they can find something it wants to eat, and distract it from its emotional pain.

This and like actions are more common than we wish to believe. Blue-Fronted Amazons of this sub-species are even more commonly abandoned. The reason tends to run along this line: The Parrot is purchased based on a combination of how pretty it is and it will make a wonderful accent in the living room. The young Amazon gets along fairly well at first, but problems develop quickly when unlike the silk flowers, it is noisy and messy. After the passage of time and several well placed bites, it is moved to the laundry room or basement. The screaming parrot is no longer a joy to have and like the rest of the trash, it is bagged and, the link covers the rest of the story!

As stated above, it is not uncommon for Amazon to not eat after such an event. See above for the whys. Getting them to eat and as quickly as possible becomes a top priority as they will starve.

We have long taken in this 'class' of Amazons and I am not surprised as several of ours had been very near death.

The information provide, implies that law enforcement know far more than is being reported.

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

It's stories like theese that make me not mind so much if someone posts on cl looking for a free bird.

Honestly if a person could provide a loving home sans vet care the bird would be better off.

I'm not saying a vet isn't important just that it's better to give the bird to someone that couldnt afford a vet than to turn it loose or throw it away.

the answer can quite often be shame. People are so ashamed of themselves for 'failing' their pet that even when surrendering pets they feel so bad they act irrationally and do worse not realizing it.

I think the stigma over surrendering pets needs to be lifted personally. If someone feels they cannot give their pet a good life then they should feel they are doing good by them in surrendering them (all rescues should also receive some government funding to help bring more people in to volunteer)

I would very much say that anyone who feels they cannot look after a pet should at first try, but if after trying they still can't then it is better to go to a rescue who will find an appropriate home instead of throwing them on craigslist to "make some money back" I personally argue that any pets over a certain age should not be put up for sale on the internet but that kind of regulation just isn't currently possible without extremely invasive measures

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

That is truly saddening. The sheer cruelty that people can do shows no bounds. I am glad he has found himself a safe place at the shelter and is going to receive veterinarian help. Poor guy .

Lord Triggs

That is a very nice suggestion. Every major city of the world, say all cities that have a population of 1 million or more should have a Government run bird rescue shelter and bird helpline to help birds in distress.

Also there should be more done to assess whether a prospective Bird guardian has the ability to look after a bird - say for the next 2 years, before S/he is allowed to purchase or adopt a bird.

cheers
