Hello,

Have a look at the mytoos tribute that Janny put together.

http://www.mytoos.com/wmv/MyToos2PhotoStory1.wmv

EDIT: Warning that this is a troubling video. It is very heart breaking. This is not a warm and fuzzy video.

And this folks, is the sad and brutal truth.
shocked

EDIT: In my sadness, I failed to give my thanks. I am sure that it was as heart wrenching to put this together as it is to view it. THANK YOU!

Wow, Michael thanks for posting. Janny, thanks for putting this together. As EM said, this is the sad reality of what WE have done to these magnificant creatures. As hard as it is to look at, it needs to be seen.

Is it okay to crosspost to others?

I am still bawling.. and speachless.

how touching, sad, horrific, there are not enough words to decrribe what I just watched, and not enough tears for teh agony i feel for those poor birds .

thank you to teh maker of that video, can that be posted other places ? I would love to put the link to that on my rescue website.

MORE people really need to know the TRUTH of what is happening to so many of these animals.

Well done, Janny! It's both sad and infuriating. Will this video be a Mytoos forever link? I'll be sure to circulate it!

If you must cripple a creature
to keep it, perhaps you should
reconsider its suitability as a pet.

Absolutely a beautiful job. Like I said when I posted Stewart Metz pictures, its one thing to hear about, to see it make it all so real, sticks in your mind and makes you want to act. I am going to send this to Stewart if that's ok with you, the gentle man he is, he will cry.
A bunch of us have been generating emails to many well known animal advocates, may I share it with them as well, again seeing makes it real, if not I understand.

Feel free to share it.I made it so everyone could see it.I know what you mean about seeing it making it real.Thank you for the compliments.

I really loved the slideshow Stewart Metz did(not in a fuzzy warm way but loved it because it will make people see the real truth),really makes you realise when they say trapping wild birds they mean it.I guess I always pictured it different in my mind. frown Or maybe I wanted to picture it differently.

Jan - nice job. Tough topic. Since you are gong to allow it out on the internet, if I may, distructing should be spelled with an E not an I and I tried to look up destructing, and coulding find it in the dictionary. Since I don't know anything about media creation,,,is there a way to make the pictures (and words) larger? Bi-focal granny here had to squint to read some of it.

I could not even look at it all, why must the people continue to buy these poor creatures.
How heartbreaking, so sad.

This is the first chance I've had to look at the video and it's hard to type for the tears. You did a beautiful job putting this together Janny. I hope it gets massive circulation and will do my bit to make sure it does. A special thanks for all the folks to who step foward to do what they can for these birds.

Janny and Michael, thank you for taking the time to prepare this slideshow. It is indeed heartbreaking and so true. I hope folks who have well adapted non-picked cockatoos can look at this and realize that the birds in these pictures do not represent a small minority. The fact is that cockatoos who have been in their home for many years and whose needs are met as well as humanly possible, represent the minority.

Edit to add: this weekend at two different shelters, I spent time with two different male U2s. Both of whom are severely plucked with follicle damage, both of whom wanted nothing more than for someone to hold and talk to them. One was in a loving home for 8 years until the owner passed away. Then went through several homes in the next couple of years because he started plucking and became agressive. The other, well, nothing of his history is known, except that he was at one time a loved pet, and for whatever reason became a "throwaway". These are two of the lucky ones.

Good job to those who put this together, words can't describe how this made me feel. Too bad it couldn't be playing outside of every pet store and breeder for people to see on their way in. It sickens me that people bring home birds, and other animals for that matter, and then get rid of them when it doesn't turn out the way the picture in their head looked. Why can't they see that they are dealing with a living, breathing creature here angry !

Very powerful. It hurts so badly to watch. You just want to help every one of those birds. Thank you for opening the eyes of the people. I agree, every pet shop and every breeder should have to show this to people so they can see what happens to these beautiful birds when some one doesn't care enough. How can someone not care enough?
