Landmark Bill Protecting Baby Parrots Goes into Effect
Sacramento, CA — Precedent-setting legislation that protects young parrots in the state will go into effect on September 1, 2004. The Animal Protection Institute (API), a national animal advocacy organization, sponsored Assembly Bill 202, introduced to protect young parrots in the pet trade. The new law requires that parrots be weaned (able to eat on their own) before release from a pet store, swap meet, or retail outlet, and that pet shops must have at least one employee trained in the care and feeding of young birds. California is first state in the nation to regulate the sale of unweaned birds.
We want to educate and inform people of the importance of learning about these wonderful animals especially prior to and after acquiring them!
