calleo: anoracleofwar: calleo: candiikismet: alittlebitridiculous: arciifer: babyanimalgifs: this is the angriest bird i’ve ever seen To the people in the comments saying the guy is doing this “just for show” He’s not With this kind of bird, they are VERY attached to their cages, so if you need to replace the cage, you need to the show the bird you’ve destroyed it so it will accept the new one. It’s upset bc the cage it liked is gone, but the cage was too small for it so it needs to be replaced. The bird is fine. Thank you for explaining that! I’ve been wondering about this video. That bird was livid! @arciifer is so incredibly wrong about the behavior here I can barely form coherent thoughts to explain how and why, it’s just 100% wrong. It is absolutely a myth that “you need to show the bird you’ve destroyed it so it will accept the  new one” or that the bird is angry at all; their whole comment shows a 100% lack of understanding about parrot behavior. I don’t know what facts-I-just-made-up blog that came from, but it’s laughably untrue.  You don’t need to destroy a parrot’s previous cage to ‘show’ it that it’s gone, you could just do what pretty  much every other parrot owner does if they need to replace a cage: Either sell it or give it away if it’s a safe cage and still in good condition, or throw it away. You don’t have to ‘show the bird’, that’s completely and utterly absurd to think that. That cockatoo isn’t “livid” either, it’s having fun and joining in the noise party; that particular bird just happens to have been taught to swear by previous owners and is just yelling along with the noise and having a great time. Our parrot’s last owners taught him to swear and, though he mostly doesn’t anymore, if he gets SUPER excited, he’ll start dropping f-bombs in his excitement; it doesn’t mean he’s “livid”, it  means he’s excited. See, the thing about parrots, and especially cockatoos: They LOVE a good noisy, banging, bell ringing, clanging, screaming, lots of movement and LOUDNESS party and everything about that ‘too’s body language says, “THIS IS AN AMAZING LOUD PARTY I WILL JOIN!” So….is the guy in the vid just trashing a crappy cage to have a good time with his parrot (because who wouldn’t to have a healthy screaming match and noise party with their beloved parrot) and posting it on line because it’s a thing that bird owners do or was he promoting the myth that the bird has to see the cage destroyed and get angry to move on? I can’t really tell what’s going on- I don’t speak bird or bird owner.  I mean, if it’s a guy and his bird having a good noisy fun screaming match time and that’s just what some bird owners do to have fun with their birds- great. I promote this level of pet bonding. Fantastic happy, healthy bird moment. This is also why I will never own a bird.  The guy is destroying the shitty round cage because round cages are bad for all birds (lack of corners makes them feel constantly exposed and stressed), he’s doing it on camera and with the cockatoo likely just for the fun factor and because birds like to be included in safe flock activities, which smashing this piece of shit cage is. It’s noisy, it’s not dangerous, it’s full of movement, it’s fun for the cockatoo. Some random dingus on Tumblr made up the nonsense about “needing to show the bird” and the rest of you non-Google using people went along with it. : calleo: anoracleofwar: calleo: candiikismet: alittlebitridiculous: arciifer: babyanimalgifs: this is the angriest bird i’ve ever seen To the people in the comments saying the guy is doing this “just for show” He’s not With this kind of bird, they are VERY attached to their cages, so if you need to replace the cage, you need to the show the bird you’ve destroyed it so it will accept the new one.

Check.<br/>4) A systemic view of police whereby “public guarding”, which happens to be an expectation of the average citizen, is set aside and police are turned into “law enforcement” agents who’s primary function is to issue citations or find a way to enroll the citizen into the state’s extortion scheme. Check.<br/>5) A rogue institution of policing around the country that involves portraying the citizen as the primary target, resulting in needless bullying by police.

They don’t guard the public, nor should they have any claim to ‘self defense’ when they are the one pursuing the people in the first place. If I pursued and shot someone, I wouldn’t be able to claim self defense. But see, they’re not actually “police officers”. They are Law Enforcement and they are there on behalf of the government.
