Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Dragona - 22 Sep 2006
Hi, I love every animal and these pictures made me cry for ages!
I only have one question, though... about pet birds. I rescued a robin before, and when he flew away, my mom got me a cockatiel, because I loved the robin so much. I love this little guy too, and now my room is filled with parrotlets, cockatiels, budgies, and macaws. But, I read somewhere that all birds had to be taken from the wild, and how this was cruel. I just wanted to know what you thought about this?
PS: I'll tell everyone about the things they do to animals... maybe I won't be the only vegetarian at school!

Those “pet” birds are from the wild, and many of them die while being shipped. Like all wild birds, they like to fly, but your birds most likely would never survive in the wild, so keep on loving them and caring for them, but we’d suggest that you don’t buy any more. You could, however, let your local humane society know that you’d be interested in adopting any birds that they come across.
In the Love of the Lord,
