Pure birds living in harsh conditions
The rescuers have found a cage with over 500 little living birds in the market in Asia, where they were sold as pets.
Also on Sunday almost 550 Indian birds were rescued in West Bengal after being imprisoned in small metal cages.
There were birds like parakeet, Asian koel and hill myna, that were forced to live in such claustrophobic conditions. These species can survive in the cages, but they prosper in the wild.
