A slightly different kind of animal arrived at the Rainbow Wildlife Rescue. Dakota is a sulfur-crested cockatoo that was seized by animal control due to possible abandonment and neglect. The trial was today and the charges against the owner were dropped due to circumstances. This man loves his bird but was unable to care of her. It was decided that I will have custody of the bird until the owner has gotten back on his feet.
Dakota has quite a personality but also some issues that we are working on including the self-destructive feather plucking. She barks like a dog, talks like a man and giggles like a little girl. She also loves to dance and sing.
