Parrots go cold Turkey
Unfortunately we have another story about the worldwide drug trade affecting innocent birds! The World Parrot Refuge in Vancouver is a "rehab" centre for over 800 parrots who are recovering from their addiction to drugs or mistreatment by drug dealers. Parrots can get addicted to crack cocaine smoke if exposed to it regularly.
Many of the parrots are in very bad conditions - feathers falling out etc- when they arrive at the World Parrot Refuge, but luckily, the hard workers at the refuge can help nurse most of them back to health by giving them vitamin shots, feeding them properly and looking after them as they go through withdrawal.
