Woman Hires Cherry Picker to Rescue Bird

A 13-year-old macaw flew fifty feet up into a tree and was too scared to fly down. Emma Hooper of Botley, England believes that Cleo flew away because she was distressed at moving to a new home. When the RSPCA refused to come, Hooper called to rent a hydraulic lift, but was told it wouldn’t be available until the next day. Hooper stayed by the tree all night long.
"I felt so helpless. It was awful, the worst feeling in the world.

"I took out a chair and blanket but I was getting strange looks from people driving by.

"They looked very confused when I said my bird was stuck up in the tree.

"I ended up driving my car around the corner and parked next to the tree. It was warmer and I felt safer but I still got no sleep.

The cherry picker arrived at 7:30 AM, and Cleo was finally brought down. She had spent 16 hours on the same branch. Link -via Arbroath
