Parrots are beautiful and highly intelligent birds. In the wild, they are never alone and will fly up to 30 miles a day through forests, foraging and exploring with their flockmates. But in captivity, they are denied the opportunity to engage in natural behavior and often become neurotic, sometimes fatally mutilating themselves.
Splash Lagoon, an indoor water park in Erie, Pennsylvania, has reportedly confined this parrot to a barren enclosure in a noisy, busy, chlorine-rich facility for years.
PETA offered to transfer the parrot to a reputable sanctuary, but our offer was declined.
No bird was born to live in a cage.
Please politely urge parent company Scott Enterprises to improve this parrot’s quality of life by providing him with enrichment like toys for playing, chewing, and intellectual stimulation.
