This package of stories exposed cruel and unsanitary conditions and practices in the parrot-breeding industry. A parrot breeding facility in Pierce County, Washington, had many birds that were dying of malnutrition, and the local humane society did not act despite having proof of cruelty. The story showed that substandard, giant factory farms are common in the pet bird industry, and that such conditions could lead to outbreaks of diseases such as avian flu.
