Actually, it takes someone like Emily Trimnal (www.theroamingparrot.com), and Miss Vicki Knox LeClaire (http://www.parrotvillage.org/) to change the life of one sweet Umbrella Cockatoo. Thanks to the quick action of both women, Sebastian has a fighting chance.
Sadly, there are so many that are completely oblivious to the issues surround avian abuse and neglect. It is often difficult, if not impossible to impress “authorities” the urgency of situations involving avian abuse and neglect.
I will not stop until we have found a way to make the world aware of what is happening with these amazing gifts from the universe!
I offer a series of pictures of Sebastian. He is suffering from Cockatoo Prolapse Syndrome, http://florida.bluepearlvet.com/files/downloads/2010/07/Cockatoo-Prolapse-Syndrome-FINAL.pdf. The chances that he will survive are questionable, but he is in the best possible hands, receiving the finest possible care, and most importantly, love and respect.
I must warn you, a few of these pictures are quite “graphic”, but this situation should have never happened, and never left untreated as long as it did.
