And still another 'trained' to free-flight macaw takes off and doesn't come back - will people ever learn?!

Looking for the 'trained' macaw which flew into the mountains. What they are not taking into consideration is her age and the fact that no amount of training can suppress natural behaviors. She is now 4 years old and, most likely, fed pellets (with soy) and not kept at a strict solar schedule (she lives in a bird store) so the poor thing must be hormonal and flew off looking for a mate. People keep on thinking that parrots can behave like castrated pet dogs...
