We have an ongoing wildlife rescue and release program here at Elephant Sanctuary Brazil. But sometimes the process is a quick one, rather than a period where an animal needs extensive specialized care.
That was the case this week when a blue-headed parrot flew into the doors at Scott and Kat’s house. He hit his head and was in shock, unable to move. To use a “technical” term, he seemed a little loopy. It didn’t take long for him to start feeling better and stabilize. When Kat went to check on him a little later, he tried to bite her and clearly wanted nothing to do with her (which is a good thing). After a while he started to scream – an obvious way of letting everyone know that he wanted to leave. He was let go a little bit after his mishap, once he passed his neuro exam and seemed okay to fly. So it was a very speedy rescue and release indeed as he took off into the distance, probably telling the rest of his flock about the “terrible” things the humans did to him. 😉
