“God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.”
― Jacques Deval
Every bird here is a happy bird.
These birds are robbed of their fantastic ability to fly as their wings have been broken by humans who use them to earn a living in astrology 🙁 However, these amazing birds don’t dwell in sorrow. They create a ruckus at VSPCA’s Main Shelter and are a delight to the animal caregivers.
Here are some bird species that have taught VSPCA a great deal!
Emus are trafficked in India for their eggs and meat. However, people don’t relish the taste and 2400 of these birds were abandoned in a warehouse. VSPCA rescued many of them.
THE INDIAN EAGLE
Rescued from “manja’ entanglement used in kite flying – a hobby of many young boys and girls.
THE INDIAN EGRETS
The Indian Egrets visit VSPCA’s Kindness Farm and spend time with rescued horses here.
THE INDIAN ROOSTER
Rescues from fighting rings. “Tyson” was in a near-death condition at the end of a fight. Humans use animals in betting engagements. This is cruelty, where there are laws against this behavior.
