Life after a pet shop raid has been good to this princess parrot!
Princess parrot Coco loves 'holding court' at Maria's house!
The conditions Coco was found in were appalling. Here, RSPCA staff are catching birds so vets can check them.
Coco: treated royally at last
Coco the princess parrot was not such a pretty birdy when he was rescued by RSPCA from cruel neglect at a pet shop.
Our inspectors responded to a number of complaints about The Bird Shed at Morayfield. What they found was appalling: overcrowded, filthy cages full of malnourished, sick and injured birds who had no pain relief and who didn't appear to have seen a vet. It was a tragedy.
Coco was one of the fortunate ones. Although he was thin, dehydrated and had respiratory difficulty, he was uninjured and disease-free. After some time in our care, handsome prince Coco was ready for his next adventure.
