Post: Dudley - Bitting Amazon - 19 yrs old/Jackie
Posted by Jacqueline John on 11/16/06
I have a 19 yr old yellow nape who is spoiled rotten. He
has a Huge cage and playpen-he has never been locked in
since I got him when he was 3 months old.
He is well fed and I play with him a couple of hours a day
or he sleeps on my shoulder.
In the last 2 months he has sent me to the hospital twice.
He lunges at my face and bit me on my temple, 5 stitches in
my ear, and bit my lower lip from outside to inside.
In 18 years I have never - not ever - been bitten once!
The first and second time he was on my shoulder when the
phone rang and as I got up to get it he freaked out. Mad
at me because he knew he was not getting my full
attention. That is my best guess. Now he lunges at my
face all the time and now must be locked in cage.
I think I was giving him too much attention? I have a 130
lb. German Shepheard and Dudley chases him around the coffe
table, which I have to admit is very funny.
I need help! If I can't fix this I will have to sell him
which terrifies me that he would end up being abused or/and
Please help me and Dudley!
