Hi all, I am new to the forum but needed some advice. My heart is breaking and I'm not at all sure what actions I need to take or even who to speak to about the problem I witnessed. Yesterday when I was at the petstore getting a new perch for my baby snow white, I had the unfortunate experience of seeing how the new little budgies arrived and were placed at the store. Appalling does not even come close. They were shipped to the store in a very small box, there had to have been about 20 budgies shoved in a box about the size of 12"x4". When they opened the box they just dropped (shook the poor babies out) into their new home at the store from about 8 feet up. Out of 20, nine were seriously injured. 6 had broken a leg or two in the fall and 3 just fell to the bottom and laid motionless breathing heavily on their stomachs. Of course I raised hell, called management over and made them watch. I took a few photos with my phone while they were trying to gather up the injured budgies. They retrieved them and put them into a tiny little box on top of each other and took them into a back room. I threw a fit to go and see what they were doing with them but they wouldn't let me and threatened to call the police If I didn't calm down. I know in my heart they just discarded them. My question is--who do I contact about this--there has to be something that I can do or can be done to stop this treatment of the birds. I will never shop there again but that is not enough! I called our humane society and they didn't seem to interested to help. If it had been dogs or cats they would have taken me seriously. Sorry so long but any advice I would appreciate.

How awful I would report to the better business bureau for sure.
I don't think I ever would shop there either. I'd write an article and send to your local paper as well.
These people sound like morrons!!!!!!!!!!

Send those pics to the local media and call the Better Business Bureau asap.
You can also report them to the ASPCA. Where do you live???

This is a helpful link to help you report animal abuse.

Horrible.

You should have told them to go ahead and call the police, and to call the ASPCA and BBB, too, while they were making calls.

Report them. That's about all you can do, really.

Welcome to the forum!!
