Stop bird abuse

All kinds of birds are being mistreated every day. Whether they are being illegally transported or just being abused, it is not right at all. It has to be stopped.

It is proven that 50 percent of the birds smuggled into the U.S. die. Birds are stuffed into tight spaces as they are being transported into the U.S. from Mexico. They are left alone, just to sit.

Sometimes they are left alone for 20 to 40 years! Some handlers even put out their cigarettes on their birds. Then they are improperly fed, which leads to malnutrition.

No animal should be treated like this. You could help to stop bird cruelty by calling the Gabriel Foundation at 963-2034, located in Carbondale, and make a donation.
