Hanging parrots seized

Postby Pajarita » Mon May 29, 2017 10:20 am

This is an article about the confiscating of a pair of juveniles of a threatened species from a seller. The birds had been obviously poached so the seller got fined for it. The fine was about $387 and the birds were being sold for only $77.50. There is a HUGE problem with poaching birds in India but, thankfully, the authorities are beginning to act on it. (The poor little things don't even look healthy enough to be sold...)
