I wanna let you go..

Limiting to only 10 subjects? Even I took 11.. wat de fish..

*****

my little bro is sick at home.. I knew that he should've never ate that instant noodle too much!

**********

The dove in the picture is a Geopelia Striata or locally known as 'Burung Merbok'.
This bird is kept by someone i knew, living just a block away from the Surau..
From time to time, i will visit the bird's man made nest to have a glimpse of this beautiful but poor animal.
The bird leg is tied by a small rope...
I don't know if the bird's wing is clipped.. usually they does it to avoid the bird from flying far..
Her fate living in a dark, uncomfortable and lonely world is all because of the human activity called bird catching or 'Pikat burung'.
Don't they see the difference in their eyes when they roam freely in the sky..
compared to birds that are held in the cage?

I don't mind if the dove is caught and breed for its benefits in producing eggs or meat..
But I don't see that to this bird..
What I see is sad.. tied up bird.. being a victim of fullfilling a pathetic human pleasure..

The owner of this bird is the type of guy that is hard to be reasoned with.. All that i can do is pray.. Imagine yourselves tied like the bird.. Wouldn't it be painful..

Good write up. Such bird keepers tend to have less 'rezeki'. And if you go to Mecca for your umrah or the haj, you'll have to consider the ihram restrictions and may in breach of the regulations even though you may be keeping the birds at home! So your write up is also a timely reminder for all.
