The doctors stated that the bird is very weak but generally healthy. He now lives at the employee of the local municipality. Unusual pet called Bob. Fed it shrimp and bloodworms.
The condition of the bird has improved markedly. “Today, our Bob stood up and began briskly wings to flap and stroll! He umnichka! And a big fan of shrimp!” – shared the joyous news temporary mistress Anastasia Vasey Kvashnev. Her words quoted by the newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.
Since the bird is very fragile to stress, protect her from unwanted attention. However long to keep the bird in Motygino impossible. Shrimp are expensive. In addition, flamingos follow a special diet – a special additive. Depends on the color of the plumage.
Attention to the plight of flamingos drew and the head of the motyginsky district Alexey Hramtsov. He asked me to find a home for flamingos, posting a message on his page in Facebook.
“Friends, help Vasya to attach! Shrimp in Motygino in abundance not seen. Well, the budget, you know… then how to explain about flamingos! We are ready to deliver it! Though the ferry is no more. Sorry for the bird,” wrote Khramtsov.
