parrot almost snatched- let's watch the humans, too!

by THERRON
Whether you're for the feeding the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill or support the ban - we need to watch our fellow human beings as well. I saw a couple try to snatch one of the parrots today by holding out an apple. The couple were by themselves, close to the street & ready to jump in their car. Let's watch people as well and make sure no harm is coming to the parrots.
I was on the #1 bus (06/17/07 about 7:25p.m.) across from the park when I noticed a couple feeding a lone parrot with a large apple. The man & woman were away from the usual crowd, closer by the street when the man "rolled up" the parrot in his t-shirt. I jumped off the bus and was able to stop them by yelling at the man, and he let go of the parrot beneath his t-shirt. The couple drove a black car from Hayward (sorry, couldn't get the license #). It was so sad to see that poor defenseless parrot in that man's hand..I just happen to come along at the right time. Whether you are for for the feeding of the parrots or for the ban - let's watch our fellow human beings a bit closer. If we can keep a watch for people who are feeding the birds by themselves, close by the cars - yell out if you see them harming the parrots - be listening, too. I was just one person but it would have been better if people could have helped by backing me up. It was so shocking to see someone just grab the poor parrot - let's watch out for the parrots and for some of the criminals who would harm the parrots.
