Just Thinking II--Very rewarding, huh? Children and adults can
learn about birds and other wildlife seeing them in the their natural
habitats--free to do as they like.What is it about the human that
makes him want to capture, possess, and generally restrict the freedom of
another living being?And No, I don't eat meat, wear leather or kill
animals for sport.I appreciate all life for what it is. Too bad
more people can't do the same.
When will people learn to leave wild animals alone in their natural habitats?
what is the price of this exotic bird??help i haved search but no answer
lolim really curious!
Dr. Grant was right, birds are decendants of the dinosaurs........LOL!!Except for the maro, this bird almost look like a
there are millions of exotic birds in the USA. I used to have 10 pairs of
Macaws, and parrots when I lived in USA. All without any permits. not required.
I have since moved to Brazil where those same birds fly over my house now. many
people breed them. in 6 years I had 135 babies hatched from 8 pair of parrots. a
lot more than are produced in the wild. it is a very enjoyable hobby and very
educational for kids. every year I would take my babies to the school for the
kids to see and they would love it. I would hand feed the babies so the kids
could hold them. sometimes they would get loose in the classroom, much to
childrens delight they would fly around the room. The teachers were not to happy
about this but they were soon captures. Each year when I would return there were
always students from the older classes that would gather around to see them
again. very rewarding and the kids learned to love the birds in general.
Somebody bought Big Bird? Times are tough.
Is this the same Richard Davis that proposed quarrying Rock Canyon in order to
get Provo City to pay him something for his land there? Or are there three
notable Utah County residents named Richard Davis--the exotic bird owner, the
frustrated landowner, and the BYU political science professor and Utah County
What an unusual looking bird! Is it legal to have such an exotic animal in Utah
County? Most other counties in the US have banned exotic animals. Just
wondering...What enticed the owner to purchase two of these birds?
That would have been an interesting segway as well, since these aren't your
The ranch was there before the freeway.
I saw one of these at a zoo in Australia. It was very beautiful with its
multicolors. It followed me around for a long time. A zoo employee said it could
smell my cinnamon gum. It was not aggressive and just roamed the zoo. At first
I did feel like a raptor was stocking me.I think the owners were
very responsible. They had a good enclosure and warned the public that it was
loose. Why isn't anyone mad at the driver for causing such a terrible accident.
According to the Daily Herald in Orem, the bird has been found and captured. No
need to worry anymore about running into a strange bird.
I bet that was just a question, nothing more. I live nearby too, so if it is
potentially dangerous, and for the safety of the children in the neighborhood,
sounds like it is time to get out my shotgun and go hunting.
Just because this bird got loose after a very freak event doesn't mean the
owners don't have a permit. How did you jump to this conclusion?
Re Why not notify the neighbors:Perhaps the police are busy looking
for the bird.
I'm with hmmm i bet it tastes like chicken no really why would people what to
have a bird like that and how did they get it hear any way crazy crazy stuff.
I live in the neighborhood and have several children, but I had to find out
about this online.I can't understand why the police wouldn't have
notified us if it's potentially dangerous.
I wonder what it tastes like...
that's what I would call a real "Utah Raptor" on the prowl......LOL!!I do hope little children in the area don't come across it.
of Jurrassic Park huh? Why would anyone import and own such a bird like that?
Don't people need to get a permit from the Interior Department to own exotic
How many people know what a cassowary is? I have never heard of it. I found it
annoying that the heading to the article seemed to be crafted to make us curious
and almost skipped reading it for that reason.This article should
have a heading that would cause parents and pet owners to sit up and take
notice. A child or pet could be killed!
Anonymous is a vet and has experience in stressful situations. I think his
knowledge and methods of persuasion could be most helpful. Does the bird have
any pink on its body?
Just be careful. This bird is looking for dinner and you may be it.
The government needs to do much more than it is doing to prevent incicents like
this from occurring in the first place.
Only in...Utah?Beware, the end is near!
poor bird. if you have to follow a trail of blood, that thing is probably really
hurt! and to think they put the ranch right by the highway... so stupid.
