Hi All,

I'm just livid with rage right now because of a Youtube video. A poor, abused cockatoo with a short chain attached to his leg. No wonder the poor little guy is plucking!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcOgrvVTWuA&feature=rec-HM-fresh+div

Is there anything that can be done to get this bird out of that environment? Short of flagging the video, I really don't know how to proceed, or even if I can.

Walter

Hmm... I dunno what you can do, maybe find the location of where he's at? (city state in profile) then contact animal control there? maybe they can somehow find, or youtube can get their IP. there are ways, just look at all the people who get in trouble with doing stupid stuff and filming it. i'd say do it!!! poor bird frown i won't watch the video.

The idiots profile shows Italy as the location.

That poor little darling. I hope the idiot who owns that poor baby has a wake up call and realizes how cruel they are to have that chain on him and will remove it.
Sad.

I just got a you tube account so I could comment/express my anger. The bird needs to be rescued, and the owner arrested.

oh that's just so sad. I couldn't watch all of it. Maybe somehow we could at least forward the "My Toos" Link.... Maybe they're just stupid.

I wish I thought of that. I can still open it, but I couldn't post another reply with a link to mytoos. Maybe it's because I already flagged it.

I've really been losing sleep over this. That sweet face is haunting me at night.

Based on the feedback, they have probably switched the settings to "approve replies".

Yepper!! These are youtubes comments options:

Allow all comments with approval only

Don't allow comments



It appears to me that they have disabled comments completely.

I liked some of the replies in Italian:

999mastro999:"Why don't you put the chain on YOUR foot? Don't you see that this parrot is depluming itself? Give it to someone who can cure it before it dies!"

soleblue: "what is wrong with this cockatoo?"

So sad. The poster's screen name means "Charlie's world".

maybe they will still be able to see the link and read it. The video reminded me of a hostage kind of thing you know.. sent to family members as proof of life... it's haunting

You can message the person directly or comment them on their profile. Maybe someone can try and get them to register at the board and get HELP

I left a link on his profile, but he hasn't signed in for over a year.

edited to add, I spoke too soon. The link didn't stay up.
