Aviator Harness - Putting it on my parrots in 10 seconds

Some tips and tricks about getting your parrot used to wearing a harness that I've accumulated over the last 3 years of active use. I'm also now selling Aviator Harnesses at a great price. Ends with a video where I put harnesses on each of my parrots in just 10 seconds to show how quick and easy it can be.

Also I have a great price on a bunch of Aviator Harnesses from my store here.

I was looking up how to put on a harness and your video was very helpful. Then you had yourself filmed going to the park to let your bird fly which was great. Then all of a sudden you tell us that a hawk has grabbed a pidgin and then, worse yet, you show us the hawk killing the pidgin! Why? We are bird lovers on here. I want to feel safe getting on here, I do a lot of animal rescue and have to see many horrible things. I thought I was safe here. :(

Also, did you know that under "Off topic" conversations there is "sexy teen" . What the hell?!

Truth is things like this happen. People should NOT take their bird outside if they are unaware. It is much better to learn about the risks, weigh the pros and cons, mitigate risks, and come to an informed decision than having the delusion of things being all safe until something happens. There are plenty of risks to parrots inside the home as well. Life is about making informed choices.

I really and truly sympathize with you! I am also an animal rescuer (and animal rights activist) and seeing 'ugly' really hurts me and, worst of all, stays with me for a long, long time BUT, even though it's hard for us to see these things, I am with Michael in that people need to see what can happen so they can make an informed decision. You, obviously, are very much aware of the evil out there -whether is created by man or nature- but the greatest majority of people do the 'ostrich' and turn a blind eye to cruelty or reality by eliminating all sources of information that contradicts their fairy tale world and that greatest majority is the one that ends up driving evil in the world or making decisions that end up hurting others -people and animals.

As to the porn postings... unfortunately, they happen ALL THE TIME. I clean them as soon as I see them and ban the posters but I can't be here all day long so, please, be patient about things like this. We try the best we can...
