When the human/parrot interaction goes wrong

Years ago I collected the names of 37 people I'd met who had required plastic surgery to repair the facial damage done by a parrot's beak.

What concerned me the most was the outcome for each of those 37 birds.

All of them either lost their home or had been locked in their cages ever since.
