Fine for clipping wings?!

Postby Pajarita » Fri Jun 08, 2018 9:03 am

A macaw breeder was charged and fined for keeping B&Gs AND clipping their wings! This is in Trinidad where it's illegal to do so... Can you imagine if USA finally caught up with animal cruelty laws and started banning clipping wings?! They would be able to reduce the deficit real fast :lol:

WOW. That is wonderful. I think Sweden is the other country with critter laws.

Yes, Sweden has wonderful bird laws! You cannot have a single bird but a pair and they even have minimum cage sizes!
