Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

A very sad story

Quote:
An Amazonian Parrott named Mayday was found by New Hampshire SPCA discarded in a trash bag on Friday, May 11.

According to the New Hampshire SPCA, the bird was found among donations to the shelter on Friday when a staff member noticed a soft carrier inside a white plastic bag. She pulled it out assuming someone had simply donated it.

She was stunned when she opened it to find what is believed to be a Blue Fronted Amazon.

According to the NHSPCA, the bird was taken immediately to be evaluated by our in house veterinarian, Dr. Stephen Gentilella who determined that the bird was not in immediate distress.

According to video surveillance, the bird was dropped off just after 9 a.m. on Friday by a blonde woman in a dark colored sedan.

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

why not just find someone to take the bird, it wouldn't be hard to find someone to take in that beautiful bird, minus the fact that amazons fetch high prices compared to other parrots. What a shame to just abandon this bird in a plastic bag.

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

Thats horrible... why wouldn't she (the abandoner) just wait until the rescue opened and have them take him (the birb)? Am I missing something?

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

Since there is absolutely no rational/logical explanation for this course of action, either the woman was seriously mentally unwell or this was an act of cruelty for some kind of sick kicks I can't believe this vile creature isn't facing prosecution. Had she abandoned the bird in some kind of ventilated carrier, ok *perhaps* there is some argument, but to put it in a garbage bag??? JAIL SENTENCE and banned from owning pets again for life. I'd also like to see any and all animal abusers monitored for life, because if they'll do it to an animal, they'll do it to a human. Let's hope she doesn't have any kids that will be found at some point in a plastic bag after she gets tired of them or they misbehave or she just feels the urge to put a living, breathing sentient being in a trash bag for fun again

I hope this sweet, precious baby finds a loving home now. He/she looks terrified and traumatized and my heart is breaking for it. If this happened closer to us, seriously, we'd consider adopting this precious little bird.

That was my thought, why didn't she just surrender her parrot to the rescue the correct way? Unless she didn't have the money to pay the "surrender fee" or "surrender donation" that is asked by the rescue, however they typically will waive that fee anyway. It does make you wonder what this woman's thought-process was when she was putting her bird inside a plastic trash bag and dumping him outside of a rescue. I wonder if there is a history of abuse or neglect that she didn't want to be charged with?

The fact that this poor bird isn't eating and may very well have serious medical/health problems that the rescue isn't aware of is just awful, because I can't imagine this woman is going to admit to dumping her bird now that she has committed a crime she could be arrested for...

Re: Parrot abandoned in a Trash Bag

Over the holidays a jogger found a litter of Collie/Shepard puppies that had been placed in a dumpster. The jerk responsible even closed the lid so the helpless eight week old puppies wouldn't be heard.

There is no reason whatsoever for behavior like this.
