Appeal after budgie dumped in fish tank.

Byline: Abby Bolter Reporter abby.bolter@walesonline.co.uk

A BUDGIE has been found dumped on a street in a fish tank.

The RSPCA said the green and yellow bird was found on Glanffornwg in Wildmill, Bridgend.

Animal welfare officer Paula Milton said: "We have no other information or evidence, but it appears that this budgie has sadly been abandoned.

"We are appealing for information to try and find out what happened."

The charity said budgies have specialist needs which can be challenging to meet in the home.

They are social birds which require beneficial interactions with their own species and so need to be kept in male pairs.

They also require a large aviary for free flight, or to be allowed out of their cage in order to exercise daily. They are also at risk of metabolic bone disease, so require the correct diet, supplements and UVB lighting.

Anyone with information about the budgie, which was discovered at 5.30pm on Wednesday, May 11, is urged to contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
