Shelby, known to some as Birdzilla, is one of our permanent residents at Feathered Friends Forever. Originally from Alaska, Shelby is a Miligold Macaw (a hybridization between a Blue & Gold Macaw and a Military Macaw).
Prior to arriving at our facility, Shelby put 6 people, including her owner and veterinarian, in the hospital requiring reconstructive surgery. Her attacks became so ferocious, the owner contemplated euthanasia. Instead, Shelby was sent to us to live out the rest of her life.
Visitors are cautioned to keep a safe distance from Shelby and to never put their fingers near her aviary. Shelby can be unpredictable and will not hold back in a bite.
For immediate assistance, please call (706) 312-2371.
