My ex-wife and I owe 2 Alexandrian Parakeets, very similar to these Ring Necks, and I can tell you they a very good beak on them,... I was hoping the Ring Neck would have gotten a chunk out of him.

Those poor birds. I wrote a fiction story on parrot smuggling in Australia for class, but seeing that come to life is just scary.

I saw this in the Philippines. They caught little song birds and put them in wooden cages with no room for food and water.

I think that there are some places where you can report smuggling. Maybe the ASPCA? I think that smuggling would count as cruelty.

Some countries the people do not value life as we do. They think nothing of treating animals that way because they don't treat people much better.

It is sad that you have to have a brother like that.
