What may be even sadder is that the owner of this bird could
have intentionally released it. A former boss of mine
released her son's budgie to the wild when she got tired of
taking care of it. At least she had enough sense to ask me
to help find her son's conure a new home (which I easily
did), before letting it go too! Too bad she didn't tell me
the budgie needed a new home as well!
Unfortunately, may people release animals to the wild when
they get tired of them. A couple of years ago there was a
domestic rabbit in my yard. I searched the neighborhood and
found from another neighbor that one of our community's
residents would get pets for their kids at Easter and then
release them later when the kids no longer wanted them. What
the heck is wrong with people?
Of course not only do people release birds and rabbits, they
also release alligators, snakes, fish, and who knows what
