San Francisco Considers Bird Sale Ban

San Francisco May Ban Sale of Parrots

Sale of Parrots may be Banned in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — San Francisco is now considering including even more pets in its proposed ban on pet sales in the city. The idea is to limit the number of dogs, cats and other small creatures that wind up in animal shelters.

A San Francisco city commission was getting ready to vote to prohibit the sale of dogs, cats and smaller animals like guinea pigs, hamsters and rats, when at the eleventh hour a bird rescue volunteer asked to include feathered companions.

“These birds end up in shelters, on Craigslist, surrendered to rescues, set free, threatened to be set free, abandoned at vets,” said Elizabeth Young from the Mickaboo Bird Rescue organization.

I find this article and video to be very disheartening. Is this something they could be trying in all areas of the country? What do you think?
