Then they return and one of them throws a rock at him, while another tries to approach him again with a bag. At that moment ‘Poncho’ as the parrot was called, flies into the street and falls to the ground, a situation that is taken advantage of by one of the young people to kick him.

Subsequently, the scenes are seen where one of the youths throws a plastic bag across the road, which crashes against a wall and apparently the remains of the animal were placed inside.

The complaint was filed through social networks by Daimis Quiroz, who assures that the parrot had been with his family for more than five years and did not interfere with strangers, nor did he attack anyone, rather he greeted whoever passed by.

He explains that ‘Poncho’ at 6 in the afternoon would climb on a tree outside the house, which was like his house and used to sleep until the next day like any other bird.
