Somebody please tell me people are not this stupid !!

Just got back from Birdells (my Senni's) check up....

What I saw at the vet's was horrific. Was sitting there waiting next to desk
when this young lady came in frantic and in panic. What I saw was a Pineapple conure plastered to a Rat Glue trap, I MEAN STUCK GOOD.

I looked at her and just had to speak my mind....What were you thinking?
where did you have the Glue traps at??

She said she put 8 of them around the parrot cage to keep mice and rats out.

I said did you ever see rats or mice around cage? She said "well...no, I put them as a precautionary measure, but the parrot keeps trying to climb down...."

( Duh) I said that's what parrots do...and second, if he was trying to climb down then "hello in there" the potential for an accident is right before your eyes.

I quit talking after that..... you can't fix stupid. As for the poor parrot, I didn't want to know. it was pasted pretty bad.

What is wrong with people???

File that one away under WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS GONNA HAPPEN THE SECOND THE BIRD GOT LET OUT OF HIS CAGE?!

Not the worst thing I've heard.

Not exactly the brightest bulb in the package either...

Re: Somebody please tell me people are not this stupid !!

Sadly, nothing 'shocks' me anymore when it comes to human stupidity. Poor little bird, hope the vet was able to free him/her with as little pain as possible! Not to mention how cruel to the rodent those glue traps are. Had she used a live trap, none of this would have happened (at worse, the bird was caught in a live trap, uninjured).

Unfortunately forum rules prevent me from saying where I'd like to stick numerous of those glue traps.

I tried to call the vet's office to find out if the bird made it, they wouldn't give me any info....however my wife called one of the receptionists as she knew her, and was told they put the bird down. It dislocated a few bones in it's struggle.....

Awwww dang it !!! That's not fair.
