Here are 3 images from a Breeder/Veterinarian’s bird mill which had 600+ birds. Places such as this are no more than factories pumping out babies for the pet trade.
Late in 2002 inspections of the Scudders Parrot Depot breeding facility located in Pierce County, Washington resulted in documented allegations of abuse, neglect and animal cruelty. Thus began the controversial legal battle that waged for the next four years as animal welfare advocates fought the breeding industry in an attempt to secure basic legal protection for parrots by establishing licensing criteria for commercial breeding enterprises. Despite overwhelming documentation of death and disease at the Scudders facility and the testimony of veterinarians and avian experts as to the need for legal regulation of the industry, the proposed Aviary Licensing Ordinance 2006-81 for Pierce County was voted down at the Public Council meeting on October 10, 2006. Parrots lost their chance to be granted legal consideration or protection.
