Mumbai, May 4 (IANS) Actor-comedian Gaurav Gera and his friend Rohit Gujjar have rescued a baby parakeet from a crow.
“A few days ago we heard some crows cawing near my apartment window. When my friend Rohit and I went closer we saw a big crow attacking a baby parakeet that was stuck near the windowsill. It was unable to fly and seemed scared. Rohit and I somehow managed to rescue the little bird,” said Gaurav.
“As there were no veterinarians available, we decided to nurse the parakeet and provide it with food and water. We then called our friends at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) India. They took the bird for medical check-up and then sent him to a sanctuary,” he added.
The two have received ‘Hero to Animals Award' from PETA India for helping the bird in need.
“We hope that our friends, family and fans know why it's important to always help an animal in need. If you see an animal in distress, please speak up. Call your local animal welfare group and do everything that you can to help the animal,” said Gaurav.
