A Chicago business owner with a reputation for loving animals says he helped when the woman who lived there was overwhelmed because of personal problems.
Larry Hammond, who owns a dog daycare center, has placed many of the birds and animals. The macaws are the biggest challenge.
"They are very difficult birds, it's not like someone going out and getting a parakeet," said Hammond.
Bird rescue experts took the macaws.
While Hammond has done a good deed, Chicago Animal Care and Control encourages Good Samaritans to call authorities first.
