Why you need to keep your birds warm

N.J. veterinarian admits neglect in parrot death
By The Star-Ledger Continuous News Desk

HOWELL A New Jersey veterinarian has pleaded guilty to failing to properly care for a parrot that was kept as an office pet and died when temperatures fell.

Mahmoud Hussein admitted in Municipal Court on Wednesday that he failed to provide adequate food and shelter to Tickles. The Conure parrot was kept in an unheated entryway of his veterinary office in Howell Township.

The bird was found dead one day in October when temperatures dipped into the 40s.

Monmouth County SPCA chief Victor "Buddy" Amato said parrots are tropical animals that can't handle that kind of cold.

An employee at the office said neither Hussein nor a second doctor also charged in the case wished to comment.
