News Maybe We Should Feed Them to the Rabbits in Woodland Park?

The city of Seattle needs to dispose of 110 parakeets. The birds were seized from a man that lived in a one-bedroom U-District apartment.
“It sounded like a flock inside this apartment,” said Neil Deruyter, a humane law enforcement officer with the Seattle Humane Society, adding that several neighbors had complained. “You could hear the noise from the street.”
The owner, who Deruyter said is in his 50s, admitted conditions for the bright, multicolored birds were less than ideal and the animals were beginning to overwhelm him. He had been collecting birds in his one-bedroom apartment for about five years, officers said.
We would send Brendan down to adopt a few parakeets before lunch but the “Seattle Animal Shelter reserves the right to refuse adoption,” according to the PI, and we don’t think Brendan could pass the background check.
