Today Animal Nepal and AWNN, with the help of Balkhu police station, rescued four parrots and a puppy from India bird smugglers. The parrots were taken to Animal Nepal’s animal sanctuary while the puppy was adopted by kind police officers.
The parrots and puppy were kept in tiny cages. The birds were being sold on the streets of Kathmandu, while the puppy was destined to be smuggled to India, to be sold there as a ‘Himalayan breed’. Roots and Shoots and Animal Nepal rescued 42 such puppies in December last year.
The parrots are being rehabilitated at Chobar Animal Sanctuary. The police officers decided to adopt the puppy, which now guards the police station of Balkhu.
