The strange case of the imported birds in a time of bird flu


What on earth can the government be thinking of, allowing the importing of parrots etc at a time of avian flu? We've known about the danger of a pandemic for ages, two years at least. The caged bird business is hardly essential. I personally don't think people should keep birds in cages at all - it's unkind.

    Ah, but it's a dead parrot. (Repeat after me - it is an ex-parrot, it is no more, it has shuffled off this mortal coil . .) Tough on the parrot, mind you.
