I'm so traumatised, it looked so sad. It deserves to be free and flying in the sky.
When I see stuff like that it stays in my mind for ages, I'll remember that bird for months now.
The parrot is being fed and is being given medical care. The parrot is the equivalent of a human who works in a cubicle (the cage) only to get an occasional trip to the park (when the owners let it out of the cage and play with it).
The wild parrots are the equivalent of homo sapiens living during the stone age. A life of danger and disease ending with either being violently killed by a predator or by dying of hunger. So it is not clear what kind of a parrot to be sorry for - the wild one or the one who has the privilege of living with people.
I have been reading the blog of a vet who specializes in treating birds. I learned that most wild birds are riddled with parasites...
Wow that's an interesting way to look at it. I believe despite the danger the parrot would have a far better life in the wild - in the sky where it belongs.
Yeah, it is really sad :( same with hamsters and other rodents. My siblings had a hamster once an it got boring after a little while and I felt so sad for the little guy stuck in a small cage with not much to do.
"I believe despite the danger the parrot would have a far better life in the wild - in the sky where it belongs."
Well, all animals (involving humans, cats, and dogs) "belong" in the wild. Do you think surviving outdoors would make a human or a stray dog/cat happier than partaking in civilization?
Personally, I can't even look at animals in cages. I feel sad. However, if the owner lets the pet out of the cage every day and spends time every day playing with the pet, then perhaps the pet is having the best life it could possibly have.
About 7 years ago, my employer wanted us to have a team day out at the local zoo. My team couldn't possibly understand that I didn't want to go to the animal prison. I absolutely hate zoos for this reason.
I hate them too, it's so depressing.
One of my old flatmates went to the same zoo on MDMA. He said he could feel the animals' sadness. Fuuuuuuck that.
