RESCUE STORY OF THE MONTH, NOVEMBER 2013:
LOUIS & DISCO, THE JAVAN MYNAS
Louis and Disco were found stuck to each other in front of a restaurant on Cuppage Road. It looked as though the poor birds had, like so many other animals, fallen victim to a cruel glue trap. They'd managed to free themselves from the trap, but not from each other! While Disco was not too badly affected, Louis had to go through a series of cleaning sessions to remove the glue. He proved to be a true fighter and one of our most cooperative patients so far! We're glad that both birds have been successfully released back to the wild, with no lasting damage. Thank you to the restaurant staff who called on us to help Louis and Disco!
ACRES strongly opposes use of glue traps/boards for trapping any animals, as it is an inhumane method that has been banned in several countries. Sadly, most animals who get trapped on glue boards are not as fortunate as Louis and Disco, and die a painful, lingering death.
