Well I stand corrected, it looks as though bird in fact is the word.

As proud owners of parrots it is great you take them out to be socialized it is NOT a place to take birds – ever. Those filthy carts are unhealthy for humans much less a parrot. How do they let these people in? And just imagine them walking the food isles. Disgusting!
He takes the parrots home and his wife cooks the birds for Thanksgiving dinner. “Those were $500.00 talking birds he exclaims” his wife remarks “well they should have said something”
It;s too cold for those birds to be out – they risk death from temperature shock.
What a sad life you must lead in order to feel the need to bring your birds to Wal-Mart.
Get me Peter and a record player, and we’ll have ourselves a deal.
“Polly wanna Wal-creature?”
Is that even legal??
I hate when people bring pets (any) into stores. It’s gross. Not to mention I have a strange phobia of large birds. If I ran into what’s pictured, everyone in the store would know it.
The birds aren’t the only ones in the picture with bird brains…
AND, their little peckers have been all over that cart….Beaks, pervs.
Buh-buh-buh-buh bird, bird, the bird is the word!
Can we say Chlamydia psttasci???

The psychology behind it is simple enough..and alot of Walmart shoppers suffer from it..the overwhelming sadness they feel at the knowledge that they would be lucky to be seen as normal,un-interesting and barely noticible unless they drag some poor animal or three…or maybe a shirt with a vulgar saying…or a tattoo that they showcase..or anything at all that draws attention….Public executions are too good
A bird in the hand, is worth 2 in the bush…
I used to raise birds and had plenty of the larger ones for pets, never would you come in and smell bird poop, we wore out vacums keeping out place clean. They sure sounded awesome durring our wedding singing in the background.
as an employee, i can say that the only thing we are allowed to ask is if the animal is needed for a disability. if they say yes, then we have no choice, they are then allowed. i have seen people bring in their pet boas, untrained puppies, cats on leashes, etc., and all because they said yes to the question. we can’t even ask for ID or papers on the animal stating that they are for a disability, which is BS.
It’s like one of those pictures – “How many birds can you spot in this photo?”
I own three parrots but I find that nasty. Especially considering how dusty cockatoos are. I don’t want that shit near my food, thanks! Not to mention that some people have allergies. It’s not like Walmart is a pet store or anything like that.
It is bad enough that there fruitcakes who think it is okay to bring theit stupid pets into a store, but what is with the managers who allow these jackasses into the store in the first place?

@Tracey, actually I don’t think I CAN say that last word! At least not without spitting.
Haven’t you heard?
THE MEXICAN AKA JOHN J DIPSHIT
Linda S of Staten Island is a left wing subversive who voted for Kucinich for President. She likes Obama because he is a halfer (she mistakes mulatto for black) but he is too conservative for her. Linda S of Staten Island loves OWS, she goes there to stink the place up with her unwashed filthy body and to spread bedbugs and dog fleas around because Linda S does not discriminate against or kill vermin. Linda S is host to many parasites, she will gladly share with you, and she’ll share a half eaten rotted sandwich found in a dumpster with the parasites on her filthy body.
Thousands of people run out of Walmart when Linda S goes looking for bargains there and she cares not of union policy because she is liberal hypocrite.
I thought the owner of the boat in jaws was eaten…..
The Wal-Mart greeter needs to be fired for allowing these people in the store with their birds. If by chance, they purchased the birds at Wal-Mart, they should be in cages. But, maybe, they took them shopping for their favorite food and new toys. Get the birds out of the store! There is food in every Wal-Mart I have been in.
How bout the Great Pterosaur Rodan off to the left. She’s my favorite.
Here’s an idea, sell the stupid birds, buy some soap and shampoo, a toothbrush, some new clothes and get a damn haircut. Priorities people, ever heard of them?
Linda S of Staten Island makes the guy on the right look like Regis Philbin.
The birds would fly away from Linda S of Staten Island. Even if they were pigeons and even if they were ravished from starvation and even if Linda S tried to feed them.
On the other hand, bedbugs
Mayor Mike Bedbug of NYC gave Linda S of Staten Island the key to the city.
But Walmart of New Jersey locked her out.
How does she get the bird sh*t out of her hair?
Hate it when you make me google but I agree
Good morning darling…
one foot over the edge
Good morning indeed. Come back in…..
Finally, a woman that understands my needs… but still makes me pay for
You missed a bird…..
OMG!!!! She looks like the bus driver from South Park!!!!
Birds are very inteligent animals and are fantastic companions, but I do not believe bringing them to a large store like this is right. The birds might be traumatized from the crowd & the noises, they could poop, and like I have seen others say, the poor things could suffer heath problems from being exposed to cold temps. Nit to mention, it makes the owners look bad, not matter how good their cleanliness or intentions are. I do, I admit, bring my Lhasa-Apso/Pomeranian mix shopping with me (even in Wamart!) to help get her socialized, but she is vaccinated, she ALWAYS goes potty before we walk in the store, and she rides in a large tote bag on my shoulder.
But not in cash…..
The ONLY animals allowed as service animals, are DOGS with specific vests. They are also, specific breeds. Typically Labradors and German Shepards because they are the only dogs with brains and temperaments right for the necessary training.
Anyone that invokes any other kind of animal as a service animal is ABUSING that privilege set aside ONLY for the disabled.
So yes, store or any other public security can make a person leave the premises with their animal.
1. People who do this, are right up there with those who illegally use spaces and placards reserved for the handicapped.
2. Animals other than service animals are a LIABILITY to the owners or managers of public places. As they may cause disease or allergic reactions, might attack another animal or person, or damage property and goods.
I work for a police department and know full well what the laws are. It’s true a person with a LEGALLY LICENSED AND IDENTIFIED service animal cannot be asked to leave.
But a person with any OTHER kind of animal can be. Do NOT let people who abuse public accommodation and hide behind their animals to do it, invoke the disabled privilege. It’s ILLEGAL.
I pulled my badge out and made some women leave who had their dachsund with them in a boutique I frequent.
I’m seeing people bringing all kinds of dogs into MACY’S department store, then play dumb when they are busted.
They know better. They just don’t have any respect for others or the property of others.
The Amazing Mr. Bird
A-well-a, everybody’s heard about the bird
Bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, the bird is the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, the bird is the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, the bird is the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, the bird is the word
Thank you Redu. So why are Walmart employees not allowed to stop them???
As a bird rescue I am appalled, first to take your birds out anywhere without a harness is unsafe for the birds, then to bring them into a store is unsanitary for the birds and the shoppers in the store…and to the gal who brings her dog inside in a bag…shame on you too…seriously folks, keep your animals home unless they are actual guide animals. It’s not cute, it’s just unnecessary!
Oh crap… I already have to wipe down the cart handle to get rid of the snot-rocket and butt-picker germs, and now you’re telling me I have to clean bird shit out of the basket too?
Hell with it. I’m going to Target.
Simulated, it’s a wonder we aren’t all dead from all the crap you just listed…which we all access on a regular, unwilling basis…..
@Redu- I think you’re someone with a badge, that’s not really a cop, would like to be, but can’t, and abuse the authority the badge carries. Dogs are NOT the only service animals. You need to do a little research, wannabe cop.
REDU: Small dogs and even small monkeys and some breeds of horses can be service animals. My mother service animal is an 8 pound toy poodle. She alerts her to dangerous changes in her blood sugar and seizures. You may be a cop, but you are still rather narrow minded. I have a friend who is wheelchair bound. He has a service monkey. It picks stuff up, opens things, even helps with house hold chores like getting the clothes out of the dryer or putting them in the washer. There is even a program that trains Shetland Ponies to be seeing eye horses. They live much longer than dogs, and can do all the same stuff the dogs can. I’ve known service standard Poodles. They are more allergy friendly than Labs or Shepards because disabled people have allergies to. Some stores even allow pets, and as long as they don’t have a sign that says “No pets allowed” then you can take them in if the place doesn’t sell food in most states. You talk about abuse and then say you abuse you badge by running a customer off from a store because YOU don’t like it. Did the owner of the shop say it was a problem? Did they ask you to damage their bottom line by running off customers? Honestly they should have asked YOU to leave. The woman with the dog wasn’t harming their business, unlike what you did. Do you throw people who are wearing too much perfume out of stores? They may cause allergic reactions in someone. How about a sick kids who is sneezing all over everything? They are obviously carrying a disease. What about a kid who is tearing stuff up or hits someone? You going to throw them out to? Why not run every customer you don’t like out of the boutique you frequent? Once you do that they will have to shut down unless you can single handedly support the store on what you buy alone. When they shut down you won’t have to worry about people who aren’t hurting anyone bothering your delicate power trip driven sensibilities while you shop because the store won’t be there anymore. It’s power trip nuts like you who give the cops a bad name.
Uncle Rae Rae
While I enjoy birds immensely, I own a Meyer’s Parrot much like the one above, I also know it’s EXTREMELY unsanitary to bring them into a store. Sheesh.
@RnJane She doesn’t wash the bird crap out of her hair. She just leaves it in there. It’s pretty obvious these people don’t wash, nor do they have brains, or respect for others.
I was a fitting room associate at this store when these people came through and they were quite nice and took extra care to make sure their birds did not make a mess. Still, I think one bird would have been just fine, but they had a total of five between them and their two carts.
At least the are not Angry Birds
opps, ‘they’ not ‘the’
I also work at this particular store. The laws for service animals in this state say that it is illegal to ask for proof that the animal is a registered service animal once the customer says that it is a service animal. There is also another category of animals that are called “certified companions” which are typically used by people with severe depression or bipolar. They are also allowed in stores same as service dogs. Vests, collars, or other items indicating they are registered are not required. While I agree they did not need five birds especially in our cold weather, our hands were tied legally.
I second the “any animal can be a service animal” thing. I don’t LIKE IT, but that’s the case.
And that’s why walmart doesn’t stop them. Because if they did, they would automatically whine that it is a service animal, and then sue walmart for discrimination.
Apparently, has taken the tack that it’s just easier to ignore the problem.
*I* would not even walk my dog in there because I would be afraid of what she would be stepping in. Seriously. I would not want my dog, walking on that filthy floor. I don’t care how much they clean it, I’ve seen people spit on it, dirty diapers, you name it.
This is so unhealthy…. I would have called the police on these people.
Flippin you the bird takes on a whole new meaning.
The Cockatoo on the left of the cart should not have a bare belly! that’s a disorder!
@John S Megma
The term is “attention whore”. They’ll do anything to get it.
You know what they say “A bird in the hand…..”
The only other animal that is a service animal, might be a rhesus monkey. They too have vests, or the people they service have the proper licensing. And usually the very handicap that requires them to have the service animal to begin with is quite obvious.
I notice that YOU didn’t offer anything helpful about the abuses of people who just want to have their animals with them, and the hell with anyone else.
I wouldn’t portray myself as a cop. Don’t have to.
But I do work for the police and I DO know the ordinances involving non service animals and public accommodation.
What would YOU do, if you saw someone using something reserved for the handicapped?
What would YOU do if you saw someone’s NON service dog, about to bite a toddler? Or trip up someone elderly who didn’t notice them?
The point here is, that I know when someone is abusing the property and accommodations for others. And I’m not afraid to let them know it and deal with it.
I’m not afraid to do, what people like YOU are afraid to do.
You didn’t read my comment right: I said service ANIMALS and didn’t say that it was about dogs exclusively.
And as for abuses on MY part:
Civilians and citizens have EVERY right to report something being done illegally, or let someone else know WHEN they are doing something illegal. I was letting those women know that I knew the law and that they could be cited for quite a lot of money if they didn’t remove their dog.
There are still people who don’t bother to put their children in seat belts or the proper safety seating for children when they are in cars.
So I had EVERY right, to inform the parents that it was a $1,000.00 fine for having an unrestrained child in the car.
Because the unnecessary death of a child bothers me more, as it should YOU.
I wannabe a good citizen.
What’s your problem with THAT?
REDU: You are power trip driven person who has to butt their noses into stuff because they need to feel important. You are a wannabe cop, who’s only joy is to be a busy body. Get a real life.
Wow RB,have you got a hate on for people in security and or police?
I re-read the original post by REDU and couldn’t see the stuff you accused him of..power tripping etc but more importantly to me is the fact that you are overlooking the original point to make your own point…yes..ok…dogs are not the only animals we depend on..these birds are NOT service animals..and the original point is that once people know they can lie and claim the ferret they have is for some service (Oh..he’s a special ferret that can smell venereal diseases..his name is Harley)..so they look into the eyes of some greeter they see as less important to be honest with than a glazed donut and LIE with a smile on their dumb face!
I hope the birds have ticks and they infest the guy’s taint hair..and the whole family gets eyelid boils..
Peace on earth..love your brother…
Well we are used to grammar fights and macho threats but now we have bird fisticuffs!! This place is more interesting every day…..

The Amazing Mr. Bird – So much fun to dance to.
You have brought a new level of cynicism and sarcasm to this site.
I welcome you and look forward to your comments.
did anyone else see the heidi fleiss show on animal planet
Thank you for your interest in my comments..
I am jaded and angry..i am generally a bad person…
I laugh at things people say I shouldn’t..like when stupid people accidentally shoot themselves or others..when old folks fall down and especially break a hip…
I work for a cable company in the central Florida area.(and I am actually Canadian).and this gives me plenty of reason to hate the general population…
So I will always be here to criticize the poor people of Walmart..and the morons who defend them…
Ah, Florida. We should get together and have a beer.
Wal-mart Supercenter and Petting Zoo…..fun for the whole family.
Hmmmmm…..are we up to 73%??
November 18th, 2011
I’d love to have a beer w you toeach…or split a joint or just stand next to you spittin on the ground and sayin’ “ayup” every once in a while…
But I only work for a company in Fla..I don’t live there..I am a Canuck who lives in Southwestern Ontario…
But no worries..I’ll be here every day..just being a general cynic..
It’s fun and low in calories..
Crazy Concerned Bird Lady
Oh my, they are adorable, but Walmart is the last place I’d bring those babies. D:

And when he is not playing with his birds, he is out catching man eating sharks. Here’s to swimmin’ with bow-legged women.
November 21st, 2011
Do they allow that in Idaho?
I wish i could carry around some birds.
I bet her momma’s proud of what she brought home for ThanksGiving!
I saw this and immediately felt worried! I’m far from irrational, and very (very, very, very) far from PETA or any of that shit, but those poor birds! Who knows what’s happened to them by now! I think the world is turning into a place where nobody uses their brains anymore. Those birdy owners have no idea how easy it is for them to either get spooked and take off or get hurt, or both. Haha Ayyyyy PoWM I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I would rather see back titties!
Holy shit Mrs. Crabtree from south park does exist..sit down and shut up!!
November 22nd, 2011
Not sure if anyone saw this, but the cockatoo in the front looks like a plucker. You can see his/her black skin on the chest It might have psychological issues or mites from neglect. My only hope is that these people rescued it and it already had the nervous plucking habit, otherwise someone ought to look into how these folks are treating their birds. Not that anyone would, but, just throwing that out there.
Hahaha omg this is awesome and they are sort of retarded… birds are gonna die in temperatures like whats it is up here in idaho… lol poor birdies. you know the big white one cost them about 1000 bucks they are being retarded. lol
November 23rd, 2011
These people are actually in Washington.
Redu by the way they are called service ANIMALS for a reason, they are animals not just dogs! People have ferrets, cats, mice and all other sorts. They deserve to have the animal that makes them feel comfortable not to be judged by people.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
November 24th, 2011
Beautiful birds, I would never take mine out in these temperatures let alone into WalMart! Those poor babies.
November 26th, 2011
I would take my bird out in theses temperatures with a sweatervest. but not to walmart, we take My blue and gold out all the time, but the only time we have ever gone to walmart, my dad ran in to go to the bathroom and pick up some water, I stood near the entrance to avoid the sweltering hot car and catch the massive amounts of leaking A.C

Am I the only one who thinks she resembles the bus driver from South Park?? XD
ARE THOSE BIRDS REAL!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!!??!
December 2nd, 2011
Oh My Gosh…my love for the site borders on needing an intervention, but now, I have a justification. These people also shop at the BestBuy where I work, and yes, they bring in those birds. Due to my somewhat irrational dislike of birds most people think I’m making it up, HA, proof.
Sorry to everyone I’ve just bored, but it’s a smidge exciting when I actually recognize people on here…yeah, I have no life.
December 3rd, 2011
The door greeter should have made sure they were “working” birds, otherwise they couldnt have been let in!
December 4th, 2011
that’s a meyer’s parrot, they are sweet, too bad idiots are allowed to own them
December 7th, 2011
Not all Walmart stores have food, first of all. Birds have feathers to keep them warm and even though the cockatoo looks to be bare chested, it wouldn’t die from going to Walmart. Many people in northern states and Canada have outdoor aviaries that their birds fly in during the winter. Perhaps these birds have been acclimated. That being said, no animal has any business being in a store where they can get their hair, feathers, dander slime etc. on product or on the carts. Birds need to be socialized to remain friendly, but please enjoy them at home and socialize them with friends and family. Even the handicapped with service dogs don’t frequent the stores like some people with pets do. I can count on one hand the times I’ve seen service animals in stores. Last comment – the people didn’t look dirty to me. Maybe just a bad haircut and some clothing that couldn’t be considered “Sunday attire”. So what? That’s most of America today. Just look at the jeans! Too often we are in a rush to judge and think the worst of everyone around us. (yes…me too) They may just be people who took these birds in from bad situations, and possibly are the best thing that has ever happened to the birds. Hope everyone has a great holiday season!
