Recently a group of people purchased over 200 budgies and liberated them in a public garden in the heart of Ahmedabad city. The ones that couldn't fly due to injuries or illness were then collected and sent to our Hospital. And as for the birds that were released, they became food for the local crows, kites and shikras in no time. None of the released birds survived. The remaining injured birds are under treatment in Jivdaya and recovering.
So instead of doing a good deed, that group ended up releasing these poor birds to their deaths, while paying the seller and encouraging the trade. PLEASE DON'T BUY AND RELEASE BIRDS/ANIMALS without a future plan. Budgies can be maintained in captivity, in small and large aviaries, but not in the Wild. Also it is ILLEGAL TO RELEASE EXOTIC SPECIES IN THE WILD, under the Indian Wildlife Protection Act, 1972.
