She said that in an incident involving 20 birds, only two were still alive and that she had people saved because of the stress.

“They almost have PTSD from what they see,” she said.

“Thousands are about to die in the next few days.”

Ms. King claims that the birds have been poisoned with a pesticide that causes muscle damage and that it can take up to three weeks for the birds to starve.

The RSPCA is investigating following a complaint of cruelty.

Codes of conduct have been developed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries and the Australian government for pest management.

Ms. King has since set up fundraising to cover the medical costs of corellas care.

“As caretakers, we are confronted every day with the horrifying scenes of birds along the streets, waiting to fall so that we can hopefully help,” she said.

“Birds need amputations to get a second chance.”

She said it takes money to build aviaries to take care of them.

“Please dig deep for these precious souls who are confronted in so many different and inhumane ways that they will be killed.”
