Neglected Parrots Rehomed in Maryland
After more than 100 birds were found in varying states of neglect, in “deplorable” conditions at a breeding mill outside Nashville, Tennessee, the last six of them – all parrots – have been rehomed in Maryland by animal rights groups.
"They're a little emaciated, I would say," said Christi Zotto, who took two ragged red-and-green refugees into her house on Saturday in Annapolis. "You can tell they haven't been on a proper diet. Their feathering isn't as good as it should be."
Lasandra Walter, owner of the Tennessee breeding mill in question, has been charged with animal cruelty. Seven of the birds found were dead in their aviaries and the rest have been rehomed, making the six Maryland parrots the last ones to find a new place to live.
