Depressed parrot takes drastic action

China Daily/ANN | Friday, Apr 11, 2014

This is what a typical scarlet macaw looks like.

A macaw at a zoo in Wuxi has pulled out all of its feathers after being neglected by visitors, Yangtze Evening News reported on Tuesday. The macaw, which is about 8 years old, likes visitors and approaches them when they come near its cage. However, the bird started pulling out its feathers last year when it felt neglected by visitors, zookeepers were quoted as saying in the report.
