When Love Hurts
RI Parrot Rescue
On September 16, 2016 our associates from Rhode Island Parrot Rescue were called by authorities to the scene of what can only be described as Hell On Earth in Weston, Connecticut, where over 100 birds and between 40 - 50 snakes and reptiles were seized from the home of renown conservationist and exotic parrot expert, Daniel Kopulos. The smell of decay hung in the air and signaled the tragedy well before the house even came into view. Donning hazmat suits and respirators, rescuers entered the residence and began the heart wrenching task of pulling surviving birds from filthy cages… and pulling bodies from the debris.
