A parrot that was injured from repeatedly falling to the ground after its wings were cut was given a second chance to fly after an Australian veterinarian gave it wing prostheses, and social media users were impressed.
The "Unusual Veterinarians" shared the pictures of Wei Wei, the parrot, on their official Facebook page, which triggered a great response from the public.
The post reads: "This beautiful 12 week old Green Cheek Conure named Wei Wei flew in for her first health check and signed up for our Flystart package. During the health checkup it was found that Wei Wei’s wings were cut too short and too many of her feathers had been cut earlier. The owner informed us that Wei Wei could not fly at all and fell to the ground when she tried to fly. "
"To give Wei Wei a flight again, Dr. Cat performed an impact procedure in which she put new feathers in the wing so that she could fly again. The new feather set will also help Wei Wei from serious falls and injuries protect . "
When the post went viral, Twitter users flooded social media with their reactions.
One user wrote: "Super cool! Trimming feathers is like putting your pet in a wheelchair. Birds should fly! They'll love you if they let them."
One post said: "It must be a strange feeling for you to get used to your new feathers, but how great it is to finally fly."
"Wow, I never knew it was possible!" one user noticed.
