This is an educational post to help educate the community to not to SHOOT at birds and TO NOT have wildlife as pets.
Kids Saving the Rainforest received a scarlet macaw that was shot, the x-rays this morning show he needs surgery and may not ever be able to live in the wild again. He has been named Garlic because he came in a garlic box.
MINAE also brought us a young white faced monkey still on the chain with a collar from where they found him on the highway. We tried to get him into the clinic, on the chain, because MINAE had no box. Whenever we tried to move him, he held on the chain so as not to choke, like he was used to being picked up like that. He wanted to lay on the ground he was so weak.
Quickly we got gloves and got him into the clinic to get him fluids and examine him. He will survive but may not be releasable although we are hoping he now hates humans and didn't imprint on the ones that held him captive.
This should NEVER EVER happen to wildlife.
