Q: Who owns birds listed by Zootoo as "breeds"

July 14, 2008 | By MarkDHagen | 5 answers | Expired: 2223 days ago

The Zootoo bird list is all birds ILLEGAL to keep as pets. It is all USA native birds which are illegal to keep in Captivity (unless you have a Fish &WildLife Permit!
This list should state Canary, Finch, Budgie, Cockatiel, Lovebird, Caique, Pionus, Amazon, Cockatoo, Macaw, African Grey, Conure etc etc.

DocJill, don't misunderstand though, eventhough a bird may be illegal for me to own in my state or country does not mean it is illegal to own in another state or country. I'm sure ZooToo has a wide array of members here from all parts of the world, and just because it is illegal for me to own doesn't mean its illegal for someone else living in another part of the world.

Sounds like someone entered a general list of bird types only. I will make sure that Zootoo's tech department is aware of the problem and have it corrected right away.

Meanwhile, pet bird lovers should enter the new Fabulous Feathers photo contest:

It is illegal to own wildlife *native to your area* without a permit. For example, I can not own Red Eared Slider Turtles in my area, but they are widely sold as pets in other parts of the US.

Maybe they list those birgs for people who have that permit, so they can specify the breed they have?

Wow . I didn't know that. You should e-mail zootoo and let them know what you think about this. You would think that they would list common houseshold birds.
