Letters


Dear Parrots magazine,

National Parrot Zoo

When reading the ‘Letters’ section in the last issue (160), it would appear that the issue of the National Parrot Zoo has surfaced once again. I have never been there but have spoken to others who have and the opinions I have received indicate that there are clearly issues that need to be addressed.

There has been much heated debate on the Parrots forum in the past and suspect this will be re-ignited once again. I accept that keeping animals in captivity will always bring out complaints and criticism, but after all, it is those who are responsible for the animals’s welfare that have to face the challenges.

From what I understand, the vet who investigated on behalf of Lindsay District Council was not an avian specialist and that may well place doubt on the findings of her report, thus raising further comments.
