be FREE Friday

God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
Jacques Deval.

After posting a picture of some beautiful free birds enjoying the afternoon sitting on an electric wire, I couldn't help but feel sad when today I was at a local convenience store and the had this 3 beautiful parrots in these conditions

I can't help it, but things like this make me so sad... I wonder what crime these parrots committed to deserve this life sentence behind bars? How can somebody get pleasure and happiness by having animals in these conditions when those birds could be in a much better place, enjoying the breeze and the woods, while having the opportunity to be happy, free and reproduce?!?!?

I would like to see the owner of these 3 parrots in a small cage like this, spending her days staring into the unknown... Now, that would make me happy! Just kidding... but in reality if there was a way to have this person experience being taking behind bars against their will and spend time in a corner just for the sake of people looking at him/her, maybe that would open their eyes, maybe not...

Anyway, it's Friday and even though this parrots and many other animals around the planet don't have the same opportunity we have of being free or even freewill, we do have it, and this is a power that used well could gives many chances to help others while bringing us many wonderful blessings...

Have a happy and Free weekend!

That is so unbelieveably sad and distressing. Anyone who can "enjoy" such a thing lives in a self-imposed cage anyway. Makes me crazy that humans impose conditions like these on animals.

Might Animal Control have some say over how those parrots are being held in such small quarters? A cage is still a cage, but that one's WAY too small for those birds!

GLP, I know! it's so sad to have those animals living in such a way, that is really not living, it's just surviving.

Massgirl, it's so good to see you commenting on my blog, I know you told me when we met that you read but you really not comment, I am glad you got "enabled" to comment at last. I am going to contact Agriculture Dept. as well as the National trust and see what they say, also I have the pictures to prove it, so that might help!
