Poached CAGs rescued!

Postby Pajarita » Fri Nov 17, 2017 10:36 am

This is an article about a large number of wild African Grays that had been trapped by poachers to be smuggled into Asia and Europe [mostly to Asia because EU banned wild bird imports]. I did not look at the video because it warns that it's heartbreaking [it talks of wounded birds struggling to survive] and I don't need images of suffering birds in my mind.

Is there a warning with this one or is it a good rescue?

It's a good one! More than 900 poached birds were rehabilitated and released back into the wild.
