As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Don't cage birds, let them fly: Adah Sharma

IANS | Jun 12, 2013, 01.59 PM IST

Actress Adah Sharma has joined PETA's latest ad campaign to extend her support against cruelty and caging of birds and has urged the people to let the feathered creatures fly freely.

"Don't keep birds in cages. Don't keep any other animal or any wildlife, especially birds, in cages. They (birds) are wild animals and not domesticated animals like cats and dogs," Adah told reporters here Tuesday while shooting for PETA's ( People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) latest ad campaign.

The "1920" and "Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke" fame actress discourages people from caging birds.

"I don't encourage people who keep birds or any other animal in cages. It's a heinous crime and you should not do it," said the 24-year-old.

For the campaign's photo shoot, Adah dressed herself in white attire to look like a bird and locked herself in a cage.
