Thousands of birds in UK zoos are victims of ‘pinioning’, a practice where the end of one wing is permanently amputated. Pinioning is carried out on baby birds at only a few days old, usually without any pain relief. Why? To prevent them from escaping from captivity and so zoo visitors can get close to them. These birds will be disabled for life and will never fly.
Add your name to the petition below to demand an end to this cruel practice and to tell the zoo industry and the government: Mutilating any animal to keep them in captivity is never acceptable![emailpetition id=”1″]
