Missing Exotic Birds Found Safe, Returned To Dallas Zoo

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The pair of blue-throated macaws that flew from the Dallas Zoo during an exhibition Friday were found perched in a pecan tree in the Bishop Arts District Sunday morning and safely returned home.

According to Dallas Zoo officials, Zoological Society member and former Zoo volunteer Ninette McDonald and her sister Marguerite heard the birds in the tree just after 5:30 a.m. near the center of the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff.

Trainers were quickly on scene, and safely brought the birds home.

The two flew out of the park during SOAR: A Festival of Flight, which allows the animals to fly freely over the crowd.

It hadn’t been opened a month before the incident.

    They probably ate at Tillman’s Roadhouse, and like some others who have experienced their cuisine, decided zoo/jail food was better.
