    The news has caused shock waves among conservationists, bird breeders and those involved in the aviation industry. The parrots died on December 24 on a flight operated by 1time.

    I honestly think that this practice should be stopped!! It is just pure cruelty to animals!

    PS> The only thing stopping me from emigrating is the fact that I do not see my 2 Bassets in quarantine for any period of time....that is how strongly I feel on this topic!
